Lovely hotel, staff and setting. Great views. Found the evening buffett and hot food at breakfast a little on the tepid side but liked the food at breakfast. Loved the beach and service. Our room layout was short on bedroom space and excess bathroom. The Hertz rep at the hotel was rude, unhelpful and very sullen, unfortunately this prevented us from hiring a car. The rep changed on our last day! Would definitely go back to this hotel and location very good indeed.

Lovely hotel, full but didn`t feel too busy…
