Worst experience for me
It was the worst experience I arrived and they said couldn't find my booking to make it easier showed my email for confirmation then the guy at reception says sorry the person who deals with online booking isn't around on top they said I had to pay cash as they never got paid through the client only book and pay cash at desk while my credit card was charged already then I started trying to explain but they only told us to wait we arrived 12:00 we stayed there till 15:00 pm to get room I called the customer service and they were very helpful and ask me if they can speak to hotel people but they hotel people didn't want too then at they end they gave us room after all the hectic . The service was not good at restaurants too

Good hotel - no beach
The hotel overall is not bad, however, there are definitely better options in the area and probably for a better price. I was very disappointed to learn that the hotel does 'not have beach access'. Based on the pictures provided on this website, and description, it clearly shows a 'sandy beach' but in fact, the hotel is situated over a cliff with an amazing view but not available to swim and hardly any water activities available on site.

Not very all inclusive
The view from the cliff is amazing!!!! It was almost worth it for that. There were too many flies at the buffet because some of the food was not covered. All inclusive does not mean all inclusive. How can you say the alcohol is all inclusive, but the drink made with the liquor is not part of the all inclusive package. The room was very dated. The floor tiles were old and the room was a little moldy. The nettings around the bed to keep the insects out were stained and smelled.
