THE GOOD - resort was within 20 minutes of the airport and we were given a room near the main pool which was very nice. The food choices were great and similar to other resorts we've been to.

Just returned from IFA. Should have listened to the previous reviews! Hotel staff was ok- most spoke English and would help you if you asked but overall not the friendliest.
