Everything is almost perfect in this hotel. it's in the middle of the rest&club district. Walking distance to other cool places but at the same time you can not sleep before 2 am because of the noise. Choose quiet rooms when you book.

An amazing experience at the hotel! The staff were so accomodating and helpful. I recieved the best care and service even before I went there. They accomodated my requests in every possible way and they were always available and replies right away if you ask any questions. Once we were there the resort is gorgeous. We stayed in mastersuit beachfront room and had the greatest beach experience ever. The view of the ocean from your bed- nothing can beat that. Then you just walk down this beautiful beach. All in all it's an amazing experience.
