2/5 Poor

Travelled with family
Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Big disappointment
In desperate need of refurb. Cleanliness was shockingly bad, especially bathroom. Poor choice of food and quality. Although we don’t really drink, only local beer and cheap vodka / rum within all-inclusive so stay away from it if you do like your evening drink. Swimming pool (both indoor and outdoor) not the most welcoming place ever, but relatively good gym if you choose to use it. Also packed breakfast only and no lunch on last day as they were closing the hotel, despite having some gusts?!? Within positives, all team very friendly and helpful.

October
Room couldn’t fault at all. Spa was really good on the days that weren’t as sunny. Food was really tasty and good although the last day I asked for a coke from the back and it came with a cluster of ants which was off putting . Little things such as waiting for a drink at the bar when being the only person as the bar as no one was behind the bar, the pool bar not being open till 12 so not being able to get a drink from breakfast shutting to 12 was a bit of a pain. Some of the staff were very friendly others looked like they didn’t want to be there. Overall good stay but things to improve on .

Nice hotel, great location, rooms need TLC
Great location of hotel and clean and modern in most areas. Some areas of the rooms are a little dated and the sofa bed was very uncomfortable. Food was OK, but not brilliant. Pool was very cold.
