It can't get worse from here. The food is totally not fresh and the staff admitted to buying from roadside vendors. The staff have no idea what those Italian meals on the menu are. Took 3 to explain. I received stained towels and instead of apologizing, they blamed their supplier, a random wash lady. My bed had a big bug...

Reading your comment made me laugh, because Ive never heard so many lies all together in one article! We realized that it was a conspiracy between you and other employees who were working here and then the same employees were sent away for obviously reasons ...It would be appropriate for you to write the truth, for example, saying that in...

This response also applies to all other of your group...it is useless to continue to write bad comments because the management has sent you away for your lack of respect and the ignorant behavior!

Reviews from 2014 for this hotel say that there is a trickling stream from the overhead shower, and sadly till 2016 its still the same case. You dont get hot water until you go and "request" the reception to start the water heaters. Dont be fooled by the pictures showing the chef cooking for the guests poolside. This hotel DOES...

The problem with Jovago.com not our fault, made the necessary complaints office Jovago. Our resort is not responsible for any mistakes on the part of tour operators.
