The place is super nice even if the rooms feel a bit too unfinished for the price

Nice hotel as it’s new. You can only use the specialty restaurants, three of them once per week for each restaurant and that’s if you can manage to book them.

10/10 Exceptional

It took us 45 minutes to check in at the front desk just after I am at the counter, not standing in line. I know it’s a newly opened less than two weeks old resort. But this is just ridiculous for someone to take this long.

Friendly staff and enjoyable, few teething issues
Was a new hotel and all the staff were really friendly. We booked a double room but unfortunately was given a room with two single beds put together, which is not ideal for a couple. However they did offer us an alternative room straight away once we let reception know. We did however have to call reception multiple times for the same thing, such as requesting fresh towels, shampoo and conditioner and an iron (which took 2 days for them to give us one). The hotel offered a lot of services being all inclusive and there were a lot of activities and entertainment on offer.

4/10 Fair

I would not recommend this hotel group, it supposedly is 4star ( no like 2 star) No toiletries provided only on request will they provide. No option of vegetarian/vegan in their la carte restaurants. We had booked for 10days ,but moved on 2nd day. The rooms are basic with ocean view for the rate paid.Not suitable for Vegetarians.

Fint hotel
Fantastisk hotel med en masse aktiviteter. Kan være støjende indtil kl. 12 om natten, og hvis man ikke foretrækker det, så bør man finde noget andet.
