Brilliant hotel with top quality service and facilities. Our housekeeping staff was a gentleman called Alvin who was exceptional and went over and beyond the call of duty every time. Would certainly stay here again. We did the half board which worked out very economical because there was complimentary afternoon tea and happy hour (2hrs) everyday because we were in a suite. And it may we had a private lounge area for breakfast. Very well done

We were looking for a little bit of winter sun and relaxation, we certainly found everything we could have wanted. The site is spacious with plenty of options for dining, shopping and treatments. There are several pools plus a good-sized stretch of private beach so we never felt crowded or uncomfortable. From the moment we arrived - around 2:30am - we were welcomed and taken care of so we could take things easy and relax for the whole of our stay. We would happily return and hope to visit again in the not-too-distant future. Thank you to everyone who made our holiday so enjoyable 🙏
