We recently spent two weeks at the hotel. We initially were wondering if that would be too long a stay, but the experience proved to be great !! The rooms were smaller but the hotel was very clean. We found the location was outstanding, great beach for walking and the hotel pools were lovely and we always got a chair...

Average sized rooms. The bed was a bit hard for our taste but we liked the pillows. Mini bar was a nice touch. We upgraded to the Royal Club, not sure it was worth what they're charging, but the premium alcohol was nice. I will say, they used cranberry syrup instead of juice which made our drinks taste awful. The...

This resort is a terrific size for people who are looking for a quiet vacation. All amenities are close by, and for those who like to walk; you can follow the beach for hours. It is quite a boutique experience with two a la carte restaurants, a buffet and a pay-for-service restaurant. The food was terrific in all venues, and...

lovely resort. On the smaller side which was what I needed this year. Upgraded so we had a lovely private balcony and larger room. Wifi only works in the lobby or if you are a member in the first club. Great food! Wonderful Staff!
