Worst experience!!!!!!!

javiermadeling on Sep 16, 2021

This hotel is the worst i’ve ever been. The service is the worst. They are not kind to their guest. The rooms are dated and the service is bad . Never again!! Don’t come here if you want to have a good stay.

Enjoyable stay

Llove2Travell (Oakville, Canada) on Sep 11, 2021

Very friendly staff. Excellent customer service. Front desk and customer service staff speak very good English. Every thing and everywhere is sparkling clean. They follow great COVID measures e.g. sanitizing tables & beach loungers between customers, masks has to be worn and sanitizers in common areas, you need to wear a glove before helping yourself to the buffet. Special thanks to our friends: Marcos and Antonio (Front desk), Amy, Ester, Samuel, Alex and Nicolas (restaurant staff). The land scape is very well maintained although it's a huge property. Deducted a star for our not great Fish Market restaurant experience (they don't communicate well in English and the fish wasn't marinated well). Also because the same drink from different bars tastes different! We liked the Sport bar the best. We enjoyed our experience in the Greek restaurant. The food was tasty and very close to the authentic flavors. Rooms are very clean and the bed was comfy but needs a bit of maintenance especially with bathrooms. Internet coverage throughout the property is amazing from the beach to the security gates!
