Good location and easy check in after a long flight. Rooms are slightly old in the way it was furnished but that did not effect our stay or the enjoyment of our week at all. We had a fantastic time in fact. The beach is beautiful and the food, drink and service from all the hard working staff second to...

The hotel is nice and comfortable. Personnel extremely good. Very good food. Good security. Excursions offered by a tour agency inside the hotel are fairly good A few problems: There is no free WIFI.

The service here was just horrendous.... The servers actually wanted nothing to do with you... There is only one buffet to eat, and the hours were very restrictive. The bright side was the food was pretty good. There is no entertainment at this resort. Bring a book that´s the only way you will stay entertained.

We stayed for 14days in this hotel - 5days would be long enough. First thing we were told at reception is that "WE have to pay 30US$ for a safe on room." No explanation, no choice. We refused, and asked how come. We were told that if we do not pay, they will not allow us to use the safe...

We stayed here for one night. When we booked the room we asked about late check in and how late the restaurant would be open because we would be arriving around 10pm. We were told 11:00pm. Not true! They were prepared with the room but the restaurant closed at 9:30pm. We were on our own to find dinner after traveling...

I have a lot to say aboout whala but mostly want to relay how peaceful and relaxing the trip was, mostly in part to the hotel. You very much feel at one with nature and very comfortable in the surroundings, the experience was unlike staying at the large chain hotels with loud music at the pool and heavy drinking, here...
