We had a deluxe room which was beautifully decorated and felt very plush-very comfy beds and good air-conditioning -not freezing or too warm. Always plenty of beds round pool or at beach. Food good everywhere we ate.

Exceptionally beautiful beach, delicious restaurants (especially at the beach & Yakuza) and incredibly comfortable beds! Would have liked more authentic decor, too much Sheraton feeling, our room phones didn't work, I had to walk far to the front desk and I told them about it several times. Never remedied. Charged for Internet. Not expensive but silly. I have stayed at...
