. . . Love this hotel. Wonderful staff, very comfortable and contemporary rooms. Friends of mine married here, which was extremely memorable. Didn't swim in the sea, but the beach was fabulous. Fab food! I would recommend this hotel to all . . . I hope to return, but there's so many places to visit.

Had the pleasure of staying here for 3 nights last week for an event. I honestly cannot find anything to fault, the food was amazing, the rooms clean and spacious, the staff all smiles. Had a lovely hour in the spa too. All the while surrounded by paradise, the pool, grounds and beach were spotless.
