Good 6.0
Good if your a family!
This hotel was personally not for me, too many children & day time activities where it was blasted out via a microphone so could be heard from bedrooms & all around the pool. I personally wanted a relaxing holiday & chose this place as it had Spa in the name (which was very expensive!). Nothing against kids but parents were often know where to be seen & allowed the children to play in the ‘adult only pool’ & play ball games near where we were sunbathing even though there was a huge children’s pool & play area. Food options were limited but good if you went to the venues... order room service or pool service & you’re waiting a good hour & it always arrives cold & ‘second best’. Pool service was very limited, sometimes we didn’t see staff for hours. We complained once & the response we got was there were only three staff to cover a large pool area & the beach, they often got caught & held up by those closets to the bar. The rooms were comfortable & clean with all the usual amenities, housekeeping were very good & cleaned whenever you were out the room no matter what time of day. The pool reserving with towels was out of control, I’m a light sleeper & often woken up before 7am when most of sunbeds on the ‘sunny side’ were already taken by towels who then didn’t turn up until much later. The hotel says it has a policy for towels & children in the adult pool but neither of these were put into practise during our stay. Overall a nice hotel but family orientated!

Visited for the 2nd time in 4 months. The resort is a delight for people desiring some quiet relaxation in a luxury setting without the usual “Spring Break” atmosphere. Everything about the resort is top shelf and well-run. Nothing negative to say. Special shout out to Jesus at the front desk of the phase 2 lobby. He went out of his way to make sure that my every question and need was attended to. A real credit to the resort...BRAVO!
