  • 6.0.Good

    Let me start by saying that this property is BEAUTIFUL! The building itself and the grounds are so elegant and stylish. The trees and surrounding landscape are stunning too! They have several pools that are each big and well maintained, and their breakfast and lunch buffets are delicious. That being said, we had some issues with the staff. Upon arrival, we were told that we didn’t book the right room, and we had to upgrade. We initially booked for two adults and a child for a pool and ocean view room, but the booking showed only two adults. We were told that we cannot stay in that room, even though we offered to let our son sleep in the bed with us if they couldn’t fit a roll away in the room because they were fully booked. They said that was against hotel policy, and that we HAD TO upgrade and pay an extra 85 euros per night, which we reluctantly agreed to. But they gave us a handicapped roomed that had no view of the beach or any pool. Then, when my husband accidentally set off the emergency alarm that is usually in handicap rooms (it really looked like a light switch), it took them FOREVER to come turn it off. Had that been a real emergency, someone surely would have perished by the time the staff came to check. It also took room service a really long time to bring anything we ordered. And when my husband called the restaurants in the property to make dinner reservations, it took four calls to get anyone. And when he finally got a hold of someone, they were so condescendin

    Gorgeous property and great location with private beach access. Disappointed with check in and check out and lack of consistency. Expedia discounts not taken at checkout.
