Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
The beach is beautiful, the food and drink are good and better than other hotels that I stayed before, but property conditions are not good, dirty walls, bad repairs, etc... rooms services are not good neither. Room phone does not work. Pools are for children (only 3 feets of deep at any place) and service is too bad. In general, it is not a good place at all...

On plus side control of mosquitos very good, cleanliness excellent, staff good, food has gone down though frequent shortages, restaurants have menus that look good but meaningless as most popular dishes never available. Food reliance is on the buffet in grand memories. How many bars do you know of that run out of orange juice! Staff remain very helpful though.

The worst hotel ever
Your hotel is the worst quality/price service in the world, and no one of you care about that. Your rooms are terribly smelly and dirty. We just took the last room of the four that you offer us because we where tired. We spent one hour to clean the bathroom, was in disgusting condition, the toilet was still full of s**t!!!! At the check in no one explain us what’s going on in the hotel about restaurants location, time, tours entertainment etc. No one told us that we would need a reservation to eat in the restaurants. The beach is really nice, but also dirty, full of plastic cups and cigarettes, in three days nobody empty the bins or cleaned something. The hotel is not worth 50€.
