Good fun hotel. Slow internet
Stay here often. Good fun hotel but their internet is really bad. Slow and often disconnects.

Not bad but would stay elsewhere.
Rooms are not bad and the balcony space is nice. There were workers working outside early every morning and were very loud in doing so. There is also a DJ until 2am every night, so do not plan to sleep early. While the party scene is nice, there is really no benefit to staying at the resort to access it - just stay elsewhere and walk over when you want to join the fun.

A miserly loud hotel.
I wouldnt recommend this Hotel to my worst enemy. The music poolsside was actually quite OK until the evenings arrived of the Wednesdays and Fridays, where the overated DJs played underated music to extremely drunk juveniles some of whom letched over my girlfriend infront of me. Just two pillows in the room so we asked for another two I suggest you do the same. Complained about the cleaning of the room. I decided to stay for just one extra night and informed the staff of this fact on Arrival, after coming back from a lovely day out this was spoilt by an A 4 note on the door informing us to contact reception...which I didnt. At 11.50 reception demanded I come and pay immeadiately for this extra night LOL. There is a hitler of a manager there has no interest whatsoever in CRM as he swiflty called security accusing me of not wanting to pay my bill(joke).Lastly there isnt a buffet there also with only 5 choices allowed to be made. I think the Hotel is being run by scrooge as even the juices are cheap and watered down.
