Positive Reviews


Lots of things to do

Guests like that there are plenty of activities available at the resort. If you just want to relax there are the pools or the beach, but if you feel like doing more there is a gym, golf course, bowling alley and billiards.


Good service from the staff

While there are lots of guests to keep happy, the service received from the staff is still very good. The staff could not be any more friendly and helpful, some guests saying that they were made to feel like VIPs from start to finish.


A beautiful end to the day

Guests say that the location of this resort means it enjoys really spectacular sunsets. Guests say how much they enjoy relaxing with a drink and watching the sun go down over the sea on an evening.

Negative Reviews


Breakfast a bit disappointing

Guests look forward to a good breakfast on a morning to get their day off to a great start but are not particularly impressed with the breakfast here. They say it is okay, or just average, and think there could be more choice available for them.


Very busy in high season

Guests say that during the high season the resort is very busy and as a result it can be too crowded at breakfast on a morning, guests feeling they have fight to get what they want. The beach is similarly busy and short of space.


Looking a bit tired

Guests say that the resort clearly gets a lot of use and so is now looking a bit tired overall. Rooms would benefit from refreshing of the décor and there are common areas where maintenance is needed, lifts for example looking dirty and worn.
