Just returned 10 days at this resort. It is an older resort that needs some updating. The stall where excellent. Abslom at the Japanese restaurant, and Angel & Ceaser at the lobby bar. The rest of the staff where always willing to answer any questions you had. The buffet at the Magnus was very limited and lacking in dessert selections....

If you're looking for something to complain about, you WILL find it here. The resort is a bit outdated. It looks like a cruise ship as far as the rooms and center open with shops, bars and restaurants. Everything is pretty close by, the beach all the restaurants etc, so if you need to run up to your room for...

The resort itself was clean. The room we were in was ok. A bit run down. We had to request towels as they didn't always provide clean ones after cleaning the room. No fridges in family rooms.
