One of the prettiest resorts I have ever been too. Practically didn't see another guest on the grounds the whole time we were there. Stayed on 2nd floor of a villa facing inward and it was secluded and quiet. Yes, beach noise was pretty loud so you are going to want to face inward if noise is going to bother you! Welcome bag was a nice surprise and we have since used it on other beach trips. Villa was beautiful, we had cocktails on the porch at night and it was really lovely and romantic.

Room Tip: Second floor had more natural light. Try to face inward to avoid loud beach party noise.

To begin, this is a very friendly and attractive hotel. The grounds are lush and have beautiful salt water pools throughout the property. The hotel is really more like small 2 story units with 4 rooms in each. They offer a great deal of visual privacy. You truly feel secluded from your neighbors even when sitting outside on your terrace. I loved that you could go out our back door and walk right to a pool and lounge chairs. We were there the week after Thanksgiving so it was not crowded at all. We were on the ground floor and we could hear our upstairs neighbors walking around above us, but it wasn't a problem for us. It helped that they seemed to keep similar hours to us :-)
The restaurants right there on premises were the Cabana Beach restaurant, middle of the road casual fair and Mood Beach restaurant, more formal nicer food. I highly recommend reserving a table at sunset ot Mood Beach. We had 2 dinners there at that time and the views were spectacular! The menu is limited in its choices and the portions are small. So if you are a big eater, order an appetizer for sure. Service is very friendly, but on the slow side. You certainly won't be rushed there though which is nice.
We went for the "full service package" which I did enjoy because it enabled you to make reservations on the VIP section of the beach for a lounge bed 24 hours in advance. Ihate rushing to the beach early to try and get a good spot. This made it so relaxed since you knew they were holding a place for you. They offer drink and food service on the beach as well so that is a plus! If you are not a beach person, then don't bother with the Full Service Package as its really on a robe and slippers, plus an insulated tote bag with a couple cans of soda, 2 waters, 2 single servings of wine and 2 beers, plus a thing of M&M's and a half can of pringles.
We did have a bit of trouble with a bathroom door knob breaking and trying to get it fixed. We called the front desk who was supposed to send someone but 4 days later it was still not repaired. Not a biggie as we just never completely shut the door to avoid getting stuck, but it was annoying. Also strangely, we could never get wash clothes for the room? We got 2 hand towels and 2 bath towels, but even though we asked twice, we never got wash clothes.
Great snorkeling right there at the Cabana Beach!! You can walk right in a see many beautiful fish. Overall a very pleasant stay.

Why go to overprised Ibiza when you dan go this place? Top hotel on top location with many vibrant beach clubs. The hotel owns two of the best ones on mambo beach. Mood and Cabana beach club. Excellent qualty service,food, athmosphete, location. The hotel itself looks like a tropical village with seperate houses. Eveywhere in between you can find also cosy swimmingpools with good sunbeds. Not the standard cheap plastic ones, but good quality beds with soft matrasses. Another pluspoint is the very complete breakfast, where you dan choice different varieties of eggs and a healthy juice bar. Every night the hotel organises special food and music events in one the two private clubs. We have been in many places all over the world and this one ends high in top 3

Base from the ocean club kept us awake - would recommend an overhaul on the sound proofing. Staff at the restaurant barely acknowledged us and didn't take away our dirty dishes at breakfast. Staff, in general, (Other than the front desk) weren't warm or pleasant. There were no clean beach towels the two times we attempted to swap out. The beach cabanas were really nice and the room was clean and modern.
