Stayed a few times and I love it...the pool access rooms are great, the staff are so friendly and the breakfast is just fine....freshness and variety is ok by me. "Rang" in the dinning room looked after me above and beyond the call of duty... I am sure I will stay there again... There is a saying.."you attract more ants...

Really enjoyed our stay here, rooms had everything needed, cleaning staff did a good job. Was central to the beach & restaurants. The only thing I could fault is that there weren't enough sun lounges & umbrellas by the pool ( probably about 10 chairs & even less umbrellas )

Checked in at approximately 11am on the 10th July. As I am a booking.com "Genius" I am meant to be given certain privileges during checkin and my stay. Upon arrival the counter staff said my room isn't ready and I can't checkin before 2pm. I stated I have early checkin privileges and showed them on my phone but of course...

Great location steps to the beach! Close to restaurants, bars, coffee shops but off the main drag. Very comfortable rooms and loved the free mini bar refills. Hard to beat for the price and will definitely return.

I really liked this resort. The rooms were nice and luxurious, the pool was great for sun and cooling off, and this particular resort was just steps away from the beach. The breakfast buffet was delicious, well stocked, with lovely presentation. Great wifi, big bathtub, a lot of dining and bars a close walk. The staff was helpful and friendly....

Although it doesn't seem so when you first arrive there, location is just amazing. Close to shops, bars, restaurants, beach, close to everything. Close, but still located in a small street which is very peaceful, thus not disturbing your sleep. Only things that I didn't like are: 1. Bathroom didn't have a window, and drainage system was bad, so, if...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our exciting new resort concept brings art into every aspect of your stay. Check out the cool eye catching sculptures and displays made from everyday hotel items that will tempt you to take a photo. But more than this, each creative piece of installation art is produced by our own team of staff whose talent goes beyond their gracious hospitality. The installation art has a stunning visual effect that will make you smile from the mighty stack of chairs on the lawn to the paintbrush towel hangers in your deluxe room. Check out the oversized staff photo gallery, huge mobile made from pencils, the upside down umbrellas display and the facilities wall full of TVs to name just a few.
