Overall very bad. Rooms are very small with very poor amenities and housekeeping. The hotel was fully full and there aren't enough chaises longues at the pool, or chairs at the bars. The reception team is extremely rude (they hung up the phone at
us when we requested a paid late check out). The only good thing about this hotel is its restaurant and bar where food/drinks are good and where the staff is service oriented. Still, this is not enough to make for a good vacation. Don't ever book for a full week as you will not get refunded if you want to leave earlier!
