  • 6.0.Good

    The hotel was fine although the pictures online advertised the beach front infinity pool with the swim up bar as an adults pool and when we arrived it has been changes to a family pool. I found this a shame as I actually chose this hotel for the swim up bar. We were also served a raw burger when ordering room service. Apart from this the hotel itself was fine, nothing amazing.

There needs to be more night entertainment and
