We will return
This hotel was better than we expected by far. The staff make sure you enjoy everything about the place. I read of one reviewer complaining about the food, I couldn't believe what I had read. Let me tell you ..... The food is so good and varied to cater for all tastes. We had very good service from the waiting staff, remembering our usual drinks, asking if we had finished always. The animation team and entertainers were fantastic, have never seen such professional shows from hotel staff. They really do look after you, too many to mention individually. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and look forward to returning very soon xxMore

Relaxing family holiday on tropical paradise island
What a great hotel. Had a fantastic family holiday and would love to go back there some time in the not too distant future. We were greeted on arrival with a cocktail. Then shown to our rooms. The rooms are more like self contained apartments, nothing fancy, tv, fridge,shower air con but then again we were only in the room to sleep, shower and get changed. The complex itself was kept immaculately clean and tidy. All of the staff were polite and worked hard. The hotel had a massive main saltwater pool and jacuzzi area with plenty of sun loungers and parasols for everyone. There was also another large pool described as the quiet pool again with more than enough loungers and parasols. We didn't go in the quiet pool as there was no need to as there was hardly anyone around the main pool area. For that reason I can't say if this pool was also saltwater . Our room was cleaned daily with bed linen and bath towels changed . Mealtimes were an absolute dream. I can honestly say that as an all inclusive package the food here was fantastic. There was the usual everyday potatoes and veg but the choice of fish, meats changed daily when complemented with salads pasta rice dishes as well as the sampling of the islands traditional dishes. Access to the beach from the hotel was simple, no more than a minutes walk and what a view when you get there. The beach is stunning with white sand, clear luke warm sea water and hardly anyone on the beach. Again more than enough sun loungers and parasols for everyone there. We never felt the need to have to rush to the beach to try and get a lounger. The entertainment team worked extremely hard throughout the day organising things such as beach volleyball ,aqua aerobics,step classes if you were that way inclined and no pressure to take part if you didn't want to. Then of an evening the same young talented people would put on an evening show in the outdoor amphitheater which was superb. The hotel also boasts a small gym with cycle machines running machine, cross trainer and free weights. There was also a spa section offering massages and pampering for the ladies if they wanted it. There are also free beach towels at the hotel which you can change daily . NOW FOR THE DOWNSIDE. I don't think it a place for teenagers they would easily get bored. Make sure you take plenty of sun cream. The sun is so strong that you will easily get burnt but not feel the effects of the sun until it's too late due to the constant warm breeze that is blowing. Sun cream is exceptionally expensive at the hotel costing â¬25 in the tiny hotel shop. The same Nivea cream at home costs about Â£3.00. The hotel is part of a chain of French owned hotels. I can only assume for that reason not many British people go to this hotel. Most Brits tend to go to the larger Riu hotels on the island which is a real shame as this one is pure quality. That said all of the staff made the few Brits that were there feel welcome and tried to include us in everything. There really isn't very much to do here which we knew when we booked and wanted it just for a weeks relaxation . We did got into the local town of Sal Rai. Although we felt quite safe it really is like a small shanty town. The local people would try and get you to go into there shops to try to persuade you to buy their goods. If you do go in don't pay what the ask . Haggle. You may get a bargain but don't be afraid to say no thanks and just walk out. Sun cream in the local shops costs anything from â¬10.More

Fantastic place for sun worshippers, beach to die for, weather fab all year round. Have been back to the same Hotel 3 times since 2012. Have travelled to many places in the world..... but this beach by the Hotel has to be seen to be believed. Staff are very attentive if you are polite to them. Rooms very clean, food very good, ala carte restaurants available 4 days per week as per detail on arrival. No complaints for the price.More
