This was far one of the best 5 star hotels I've stayed in. I only rate it 4 stars, because my room was not available earlier that the check in time. Also there was a long line for checking in, 30 minutes for sure. The rooms are spacious and very clean, and the onsite restaurant is excellent.

Very comfortable rooms, friendly staff, restaurants with a wide choice of high quality meal. Quite a nice place. It takes 2 minutes to get to the beach. The area is calm and safe.
