Another wonderful 10 day stay in one of our favourite hotels. We were treated like old friends. This hotel has everything we need to relax and unwind from busy reality. Love that most of the (relatively small) negatives have been rectified. You take the reviews and people's opinions seriously, that's clear. Also love the new decking by the pool. More...

Returned again for another brilliant brunch. I love this place. The food is out of this world, such a brilliant choice and all so fresh. The drinks are fabulous, especially the Mojitos. Service is always splendid and we had a great time. The only downside was how hot the room was this time. We will be back again. I'm sure...

Hotel is very lovely, great service, friendly and efficient staff. We came here for 6 nights, room rate was exceptionally good in comparison to other resorts. Lovely pool area and beach to sit on and no need to worry about finding a seat as there is enough room for everyone. No negatives to report...!
