We booked here as somewhere different for our honeymoon (usually holiday within the EU) and had a great time. We returned yesterday. The hotel is part of a larger RUI complex but has its own facilities within its grounds. The room we stayed in was spacious and well equipped for our requirements. There was a large double size queen bed,...

The whole family had lots of fun and activities to take part, in and around the resort. We had a great relaxing time in a Sun soaked island resort with great facilities and wonderful service and mouth- watering variety of food. Several restaurants on site to choose from. Clean beaches with the ability to walk over to other hotels on...

I loved every minute of this holiday! I went with my sister and her young son and our friend and her young son. I have just returned home and i can honestly say even though my purse was stolen (i think by a guest), our view was a construction site, there was no coffee provided in your room, and our...

“Possibly closer to the activities centre so long they don't mind the music. But the walk to the rooms are a great pleasant experience.”

“You can have a laugh at the main lively pool or choose to relax near a quieter pool.”

“I had and old fashion room but it was much closer to a restaurant and main part of the hotel! Choose room on the top floor.”

“Ask the front desk to let you see several rooms before you pick one. The closer you get to the Lobby, the noiser.”
