The hotel is beautiful and everything you need is right there. Swimming pools, including one reserved for adults only, the beach, bars, a number of restaurants and many choices from the breakfast and lunch buffets. The staff are willing to assist you in any way they can to keep you happily satisfied. In addition, they are friendly and always helpful.
