Stayed 9 nights, attentive hotel staff, clean well kept rooms, wonderful breakfast with much selection. Didn't use gym but it looked good, pool and pool area were very nice. Would definitely stay here again. Lots of local food stalls with good food in area. Beach not great but nice for a morning or evening walk
