Resort is beautiful and offers a very good view. All inclusive includes breakfast, lunch and dinner; which is good value for your money. However, some of the food options were dry ans lacking in taste. Friendly and accommodating staff. Rooms are big and clean.

This is a really nice all-inclusive. The property has many places to eat. Don't waste your time on the Asian or the A-la-Carte places.

6/10 Good

Check-in was excellent and the receptionist were welcoming , however as soon as we entered the rooms we noticed tiny moths, no hand soap and dirty sheets, which we then complained to the reception team too. They helped with the sheets but failed to eliminate the moths and gave us a bar soap for our hands. Overall the facilities were great with good amenities, but what frustrated us was they refused to turn on the tennis court lights when it got dark (for no apparent reason). The food was mostly tasteful but cold and the service was very non challant. Overall I rate the place a 3/5

All-inclusive catering to large tour groups. Food is average and certainly not 4 star. Rooms are clean but lack duvets, just a single bedsheet, and the fire safety light gives the room a bright green glow that you cannot lower; greatly disturbing sleep. The staff are very nice, but I just can't recommend the hotel as a 4 star. It's 2 at best.
