2/10 Poor

Too much mosquitos
Too many mosquitos. Mosquitos bite even through clothes. They have to kill the whole moustique population in the city like in Turkish cities as Antalya. In that case mosquitos will not come back, or population of mosquitos will be low. People are obliged to go inside buildings because of mosquitos. Maybe you come for the good weather in the winter and to go outside here but they do nothing against mosquitos since own people do not live that much outside. Besides, own people cover their full body so there is no need for mosquito protection. You can wear what you want but you are obliged to cover your body to protect against mosquitos.

Overall, the property was beautiful and the options of multliple beaches were too good. Staff was very friendly. The pool was maintained well. The pool bar was the real highlight and the staff there was really good. We had issues with the room Air conditioning as it was not working well at night. Also, one of the pool was under maintenance. Dining in options could be improved.
