Staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. Loved the range of amenities - although the spa was sold out the entire time we were there which was unfortunate. The sunset bar was my absolute favourite place to be!

6/10 Good

The hotel itself is great. It’s situated next to the sea and the views are just amazing. However, we can’t say the same for their service. From the get go, no one offered to help us with our luggage when we arrived, and yet have the audacity to point the ramp to us, so we can wheel the bags ourselves. The check in lady was mediocre-friendly, at best. The pool side service from Coco Joe’s is a joke. The staff themselves had no idea what is going on, most of the time. No one came to serve us, so we decided to walk over there to place the order. Someone came when the food came and they had no clue what is going on, as we can see them bickering among themselves. Service at this hotel is definitely lacking, especially for a 5 star hotel.
