The first impression of the hotel was not good - problems with accomodation, problems with AI. But thanks to great supervisor Anna they were solved and we just enjoyed our short stay in DT. Nice staff (except some barmen in the first night who announced us about "coca cola finished all over the island"), nice room with refreshing aircon, great...

beach facing room was amazing. Beautiful pool and facilities (great bed and room). Friendly and helpful staff. Lovely views and access to beach. Awful food and recycled buffets daily. Big mistake to do full board considering the lack of variety and the recycling of food from lunch and breakfast "disguised" as supper. Dessert was very amateur and unprofessional. Only fresh...

Hotel has a lovely setting. All rooms have a sea view of some sort. The tide has a big variance which makes it interesting watching the locals at low tide and good for swimming at high tide. The pool is great if a little warm (personally). Recommend all inclusive package.

Dear John, Thank you for sharing your review with us. One of the positives things about where we are situated, is the fact of having a low tide where guests can go out and explore the shallow pools of water and all the sea life left behind by the low tide. It creates a interesting contrast daily. Thank you once...
