Arriving and checking in really easy, really helpful polite staff. Pretty place inside, pool and beach bars very nice. Great breakfast, lots of choice. Only bad thing is the cost of the hotel shuttle, use a local cab, they wave them down for you at the airport and they are only one fifth of the cost of the hotel run...
