Just finishing a week here. Nice rooms with balconies overlooking the beach. The beach, the reason for a vacation here, is perfect. Breakfast is ok. Service generally quite friendly. I particularly liked the location. Step out of the hotel, two hundred yards to the right and you're on the restaurant street. Some good restaurants, Cou Cou, and a cute place,...

The resort was nice, spacious room but no tv. We had a very nice view from the beach which was really good. Location, was also very nice since its very accessible to the market and restaurant's. For food, the resort doesnt really offers alot of variety but they do serve good ones. Maybe the restaurant Mgr or chef should change...

No need for a long rundown. Here's a quick summary of my experience: promptly arrived at the resort, and was catered to in usual fashion (hospitably with a warm reception). Upon seeing my room, I was pleasantly surprised. The amenities seemed new, as if the room were newly renovated, albeit to my knowledge it wasn't. In addition, my room wasn't...
