8/10 Very Good

We loved the night entertainment, especially the kids activities, the food at the buffet restaurants and the cleanliness of the property. The gardens are immaculate and very well looked after. Two out of three A la carte restaurants should not be closed 3 days per week, by the time we checked in they were fully booked. The rooms are in need of refurbishment, they don't meet 5 stars standards. The mini fridge in the rooms only offer two bottle of water, we stayed for three nights at a different 5* hotel in the island and they were offering a selection of soft drinks and beer in the room. Air conditioning in the room works fine but again, the vents are dated and you cannot switch between different modes such as dry, cool, fan.. or intensities. Overall a very good experience, expecially for families with young kids, but if you are a couple or looking for a 5* experience and comfort you might find other hotels in the island meeting your expectations fully and a better value for money.

6/10 Good

The hotel is nice, the pools are huge, good restaurants, good animation team. The woman at the reception kept speaking Spanish to me, I don’t know why. She gave me a room that was very far and no one helped me bring my bags in. Plus she forgot to give me the bracelet so security stopped me later questioning if I was a guest. The biggest drawback was that the beach is too far. I tried to go and find it a few times but was swarmed with men sitting outside the gate and selling tours. I didn’t feel comfortable walking the super long desert road alone to try and find the beach. It’s so far, you can’t even see it from the gate. There are plenty of amazing hotels right on the beach in Sal so this was a huge disappointment. The Riu hotel I stayed at on Boa Vista was one of the best hotels I’ve stayed at so I had high hopes for this one but it doesn’t compare. I left after one day.
