    Fabulous

    Very central. Apartments are large with separate lounge and kitchen. Balconies are a good size.

    When we got there we were placed in a ground floor aprtment which was dark and had no privacy. We requested a move upstairs and after a few days they moved us - this 2nd room was a lot more bright & private. In the kitchen they did not supply dishclothes or washing up liquid which we thought was poor. Whilst we were there they started painting the external building brown chnaging it from the yellow colour. We thought the brown colour was less appealing.

    Friendly staff, spacious apartments and bungalows. Oversize balconies and roof sun terraces on bungalows. Will definately return.

    They seem to be targeting a more mature guest. i.e 60+ On previous stays it has been mixed ages but this time it was for elderly people.

    We stayed in an extremely comfortable and well designed bugalow, where outdoors and indoors blended. Our small son enjoyed tremendously playing under the palm trees and we all enjoyed the beautiful flowers and palm trees in the well kep garden. The breakfast was very good, and the kitchen staff very efficient so everything was always fresh, and the dinner buffet also very good. Also nice to get new towels when swimming by the pool man.

    The dinner desserts were quite boring and too sweet. Some variety would be nice here. Also, with small children, a better introduction to the hotel facilities would have been nice. We discovered that there was an exit door to the streets outside after 5 days of carrying our stroller up and down the stairs in the reception...

    Superb

    Stayed in the bungalows which were very clean, very private and quiet. Staff was fantastic and will definitely go back. 3 minute walk from Yumbo and 10 mins to the beach.

    Nothing! Liked it all.

    Staff was very very kind and really made us feel welcome. They took the extra step to make us satisfied. Property was fairly new and all was in good shape. Can higly recommend.

    Not really anything negative to say. Very enjoyble stay. Water in the both pools was very cold. Maybe the heater was not on... Good have been closer to party district, but this is probably something most of the guests wouldnt want. Just our opinion as we were there mainly for partying and having fun.

    Very good

    Nice accomodation and beds were comfortable. Clean and spaciouse.

    No wifi (have to be paid for every second) and not much information about local affairs. For amount of money you pay for the hotel, it is too much for charging for wifi even in the public area.

    Good

    good location to the airport. The bus stop is just 5 min walk from the hotel. Also the big commercial center is 10 min walk.

    To the beach, took us about 25 min by walk.
