Don't go in expecting a five star hotel and you will be pleasantly surprised! Given the price we paid, we are seriously impressed. Staff are absolutely fantastic, food is pretty good, drinks on all inclusive a great selection. Entertainment was pretty standard (cheesy) for a big hotel, but kept us occupied and amused nonetheless! And the location- WOW!! We chose...

This place was so disgusting. They clearly have some bug infestation, never seen so many slaters in the one place and they kept on coming. Staff were also really rude, huffing when at the bar or even when I complained about the bugs! Avoid at all costs, it will ruin what could be a nice holiday! People say you get...

It is clear from the reviews that there are some studios/ apartments that are in need of attention.It is also clear that holidaymakers' expectations differ widely, taking no account of what money can buy.I cannot understand how judgements can be made by those whose stay varies between one hour and a few days. My husband and I have just returned...
