    A good family place to stay

    The place was nice and people were always willing to serve and help. The only thing I wasn’t 100% happy about was the food, they always had the same things on the buffet. Being at the beach you expect to choose from a variety of seafood dishes but they only had clams and fish (no taste).

    • Disliked: Staff & service

    They offer you credits on your stay, however once you are there, they will say you that those credits are just a kind of discounts on their activities and you have to spend certain amount of money to get that discounts, it's just a lie.
