5 out of 5
Liked almost everything. Was given an upgrade on the room at check in. Staff was courteous and friendly. My only issue was tgmhe people staying in the rooms on the "beach". They were loud and there was the smell of pot coming off the patio at all hours. The music they were playing was offensive and not appropriate for children who were on the beach playing. They had their own children with them, so I guess other guests didn't matter. They were on the third floor and one of them was standing up on the table that was on the patio. They left the beach area a mess...

We are so sorry for the inconvenience. As soon as we were notified we let guest know that the behavior was inappropriate and asked their extra guests to leave. We hope that you come back and see us again. This is a family resort and we would like it to continue to be a place where families with children like to come.

Too expensive for what they offer.

Not good breakfast. Mattress seemed to be hot and cheap. Room in North was way too tiny. Disappointed. Only good thing is that is close to the village.
