Avery nice spa and hotel. Perfect location on the beach. The hotel aerea, garden and pool was very nice. However, trains was passing at the back of the hotel and made a lot of noice. Apart from that, a quite place and not many noicy tourists. The cleaning of the rooms could have been better.

The stay was good.. It's a nice place to go with your family.. But the buffet needs more variety.. The food is nice but when it comes to the choice if dishes, that's very limited.. Also more staff is needed in the restaurant during lunch..
