6/10 Good

The beach is beautiful, the food and drink are good and better than other hotels that I stayed before, but property conditions are not good, dirty walls, bad repairs, etc... rooms services are not good neither. Room phone does not work. Pools are for children (only 3 feets of deep at any place) and service is too bad. In general, it is not a good place at all...

6/10 Good

On plus side control of mosquitos very good, cleanliness excellent, staff good, food has gone down though frequent shortages, restaurants have menus that look good but meaningless as most popular dishes never available. Food reliance is on the buffet in grand memories. How many bars do you know of that run out of orange juice! Staff remain very helpful though.

The worst hotel ever
Your hotel is the worst quality/price service in the world, and no one of you care about that. Your rooms are terribly smelly and dirty. We just took the last room of the four that you offer us because we where tired. We spent one hour to clean the bathroom, was in disgusting condition, the toilet was still full of s**t!!!! At the check in no one explain us what’s going on in the hotel about restaurants location, time, tours entertainment etc. No one told us that we would need a reservation to eat in the restaurants. The beach is really nice, but also dirty, full of plastic cups and cigarettes, in three days nobody empty the bins or cleaned something. The hotel is not worth 50€.

Location of the hotel is perfect, close to the (beautiful) beach. Swimingpools are nice. Englisch is 'spoken', but not by everybody from the staff. Rooms are clean. The buffet is oké, a lot of choice. Freshly made dinners do take some time.

Détente, soleil et mojitos
Un hôtel avec des prestations "all inclusives". La plage est très bien située et le lieu véritablement calme par rapport à d'autres hôtels. Le personnel est très serviable et attentionné. Nous y avons effectué notre lune de miel et avons eu droit à une charmante attention de la part de la direction (bouteille de Cava sur la plage avec un saxophoniste pour nous jouer des airs romantiques, cela peut paraître cliché mais cela reste un très bon souvenir).Un lieu parfait pour se détendre après avoir bien vadrouillé dans l'île.

Spiaggia molto bella di sabbia fine bianca e mare azzurro molto trasparente. Scarsa igiene nella gestione di alimenti e bevande nel ristorante e nei bar.Nessuna sostituzione delle lenzuola in 10 giorni

6/10 Good

Estuvimos en la parte de only adults en el Sanctuary. Lo mejor, la zona de la piscina y la playa, que es preciosa. El resto no considero que esté a la altura de un cinco estrellas. Limpieza dudosa en las zonas comunes, puertas despintadas... En nuestra habitación el secador de pelo estaba arrancado de la pared. Detalles sin importancia que dan sensación de instalaciones venidas a menos. La comida correcta, pero nada que ver con otros resorts que hemos visitado. Otra cosa a remarcar es la gran cantidad de mosquitos. És algo exagerado, de modo que creo que el hotel tendría que adoptar medidas al respecto (fumigación, mosquiteras, evitar agua encharcada...). Pasas unos días allí y sales literalmente acribillado.
