The property is okay. The rooms are subpar. I can’t complain too much. I got what I paid for, an $1100 trip including flight for 3 nights; quick cheap trip. Please eat at the Italian restaurant for dinner EVERY NIGHT, outside of that you will be dissatisfied. Breakfast is okay. Flies everywhere. Some food covered and some not. The rooms are a “NO.” Dirty sheets, tiny insects crawling throughout the room. AC linkage. Cosmetically the property is an eye sore. I had an encounter w/ a staff that was beyond obnoxious. However, the property manager handled my complaint with grace. I don’t recommend this resort.

Liked: Cleanliness
Pictures are very deceiving! There is no beach area really and the pool is very small. Another disappointing fact was the food, it is not all inclusive type - they have a continental breakfast and a la cart options for lunch and dinner. Food was tasty but very limited for an “all inclusive”. I wont return there!

The location and hotel building was excellent and the staff very professional and friendly. The reception team at the hotel made the checkin easy and we’re always available for help and advice. Will definitely return to this hotel.

We were all very disappointed about the condition of the rooms. Our first room had 3 leaks and smelt very damp. Also, whenever we had issues, it took a while for the maintenance team to come and have a look. The Property managers and Elegant Hotel group need to get urgent repairs carried out on this property.
