6/10 Good

The weather turned so we didn’t get to take advantage of the beach and pool. Things looked nice but a bit of a sterile vibe about the place. The staff were not so accommodating about dining in the restaurant and we were finally seated and ignored for almost an hour before a waitress acknowledged us. She was friendly and saved the day. The power went out when we tried to check out and the front desk were not helpful or trying to come up with a solution but instead insisted on cash with no apology It just left a sour taste. If you are in to organized scheduling with activities sports and fitness it likely would suit your taste. Rooms were very clean and nice though and beds comfortable.

Overall nice
The staff was very friendly and helpful, our stay was very nice. The only negative comment would be regarding the mop trolleys waking us up each morning. As the corridor floors are covered with tiles, the cleaning ladies were making some noise when wheeling the mop buckets. The place was kept very clean though.
