The hotel in general was amazing, everyone was nice (carlos and gregory are extreamly funny and Zulema is so nice), food was also good. However what made my vacations unforgetable as a Crossfit enthusiast was the possibility to practice Crossfit, and even catch up with the Open exercise released during my stay. The Box is perfectly equipped, I must say...

We were happy with every aspect of our stay: the food, the room and the service were all good and the staff helpful and friendly. It was perfect for the relaxing week we wanted - courtesy buses and public transport made it easy to get around, too.

The staff were truly amazing from the moment we arrived till the...

First of all.... the garden and pool areas are immaculate and beautiful. The food was varied and we didn't go hungry, often cold but there are microwaves to heat up. I have to be honest... the help yourself station was of a better quality than the restaurant/buffet. I would also recommend booking the hotel side if you are all inclusive......

We spent 5 nights here over February half term, family of four with two girls of ten and fourteen. We had never been all inclusive before but would definitely go again. The food was far better than our expectations, everything you could possibly want. Yes, food did run out but it was always replaced with fresh, even towards the end...
