    Very Disappointing Service

    Very disappointing service from staff and management. Items stolen from room. Most of the restaurants & bars were closed or only open on certain days. Drinks not as advertised, was all local cheap brands. Waiting 30 - 40 minutes for drink orders. Pool Bar very understaffed and staff quite frankly rude especially with children. Entertainment in evening was unpredictable and no-one could tell you if there would be entertainment or not. Drinks served in paper cups due to running out of glasses even though hotel was only about 70% full. Very disappointing for the price and I would not recommend the hotel until service or management improve

  • 8.0.Very good

    Great place to stay. My only complaint would be make sure you make a restaurant reservation as soon as you get there, we are unable to go to one of the restaurants one night and had to go to the buffet because they forgot to tell us to make a reservation. Overall the food was very good. Many options to choose from. The pool was in OK condition, some tiles missing, etc. The drinks were excellent and plentiful and the beach was amazing too.

    This hotel property had difficult check-out and is dishonest with their policies. I would not recommend booking a stay here ever.
