Nice location for a beach and snorkeling or scuba diving. Wifi in our room was very poor. Housekeeping not too bad but had no issues getting things for our room if we needed them. Restaurant nice and some great meals from surrounding restaurants.

Hotel on the beach

Excellent room with good view of the ocean. Nice beach but sadly lacking in shady areas for guest's lots of beds but not enough umbrellas for a country with morning temps in the 30s. Good choice bland but there are a fantastic number of places eat on the beach and in the nearby street's.

Sehr gute Lage. Super Pizzen. Am ersten Abend dröhnte jedoch laut Musik von der Nachbardisco herüber. Die folgenden 3 Nächte war es dann ruhig. Leider war ein Mittagessen bei der Snackbar schlecht. Villeicht waren es auch die Eiswürfel. Jedenfalls musste alles wieder raus. Dies trübte natürlich etwas denn Eindruck. Der längliche Pool ist toll. Das Gym ist schlecht und verdient den Namen nicht.
