The Resort is extraordinary, beautiful, nice landscape, beaches, clean rooms and excellent staff, free sport possibilities, nice food. A really big choice of everything was available. I missed nothing. Most important the staff, Elias our cleaning service, cleaned our room 3 times a day, was so friendly and the room was always in perfect condition. Mahesh our table service was really friendly and asking for everything we needed, he always had a chat with us and was the best service I can imagine. Hussein the waiter at the coffee machine was also ver special with us, friendly and bringing the coffee to our table, always there for us. And the diving center has very competent teachers, we made our open water diver course with Sahid and he was an excellent instructor. The diving excursions are also really amazing
