Excellent property!! Very courteous staff, lot of activities for kids. Their beach shack on the private beach is a very good option to relax & unwind. Lot of cool breeze in the evening. Spent a lot of time in the pool & on tennis court with kids. The food could have been better in terms of quality.

Was a lovely place to stay. Staff were polite and courteous. Great location by the beach. Have swimming pool, snooker table, spa (didn't use spa), buffet restaurant. My only complaint is due to us visiting during the hot weather. The reception lobby and restaurant had big arch openings and very high ceilings. Although a lovely sight and would be appreciated...

Stayed here with family including one child aged 5 who loved the swimming pools. Beach was clean and spacious, beautiful views - issue with getting a sun lounger but staff were happy to assist. Food okay in hotel but pricey, breakfast was good, we really enjoyed food at the beach shack - chikita. Overall a nice resort, with beautiful grounds....
