The hotel was in general good, apart from the gastronomy. Medium-sized, not more very new hotel. The guests came from Germany and are/were - as we-beyond the 60 - a few very nice families with small children were also present. We had sometimes the impression, a senior residence to find. These german retirees argue often/daily because of of the chairs – if a couch occupied, then he wants this certain during his whole stay. It was funny, these pensioners al …  read hotel review

Much better, than expected. Had concerns initially, because of the negantiven reviews, especially because of the kritisierung of the universe in offer. But it was everything was super! Very nice, helpful staff with very good german. Everything was super clean, the food was also great - safe repeated some, but it is a buffet, you can always choose something else - otherwise your own fault! Beach is beautiful and after a few steps away, the pool and the garden area is also very nicely angelgelt. Airport shuttle is also still okay, a little over an hour. So a really great ... holiday, one can only further recommend the hotel! read hotel review

Booked this hotel on recommendation. The hotel has a very good location, short way to the fine sandy beach. The food was always sufficient and good, it was constantly refilled. The service staff in the restaurant was friendly and cleared used cutlery quickly. The grounds of the hotel was clean and good. The rooms were clean and were also cleaned excellently. We are certainly not the last time there. read hotel review

We were from 22-02-14 until 01-03-14 in this hotel. I would recommend this negative which some miles not understand. Of course there was always something, if you wanted to find but i'm on holiday from the hustle and bustle of everyday life to get away and not to drive and after errors to check availability. It was a great hotel great staff and i would go back again. Because the proximity to the beach and the beach itself is just perfect and the hotel was really good. Greetings. read hotel review

Caution with question, whether hotel is known for!

When we arrived we were greeted (two families) asked, whether we the hotel. As we answered in the negative, a surprise of the hotel. We got two rooms in the 3. stick to the pool side with a partial ocean view. Unfortunately we would have the question immediately alerted, we had but as something similar was already once deeply felt. When we moved into the room we were surprised with a blower or absauge the constantly ran. Climate and toilet we could exclude. Across the wall to the robinson club was a air circulation area, but when the balcony door ... was very quiet. Remained thus only a fan or air conditioner on the roof. The first gentleman at the front desk said friendly, the come from the kitchen, and when i went it was from. None. New complaint with the next guy at the front desk solved only surprise from, then he wanted to send a technician, but the would have already time. Since it was already late was this brummen from the roof was very noisy and monotonous. He said rude he could me in a room on the street chic. So much for the hospitality. Despite ear plugs, we concern always, we could hardly sleep. The next day we did with the help of our tour guide a room change vornehmen'dürfen' the noisy rooms are always back to unsuspecting, unfortunate people award. We stayed with some speak. The friendly suit wearer, which all day its employees annoying and until late in the night for 'order' will, should take this problem and look after the plant on the roof change let. As i Google Earth could see, is the radaumaschine probably huge solar panels and seems warm water to allocate or similar. The rooms we had were 366 and 368 i am convinced, these hellhöhrigsten rooms the sound even more. You should the rooms 360 to 370 bitterly opposed. We do not understand how the people the front desk with this lie can handle, even though they know that it always again riesenärger these rooms are. Otherwise we didn't really much to complain about here. Except: all-inclusive is different and the entertainment could be a bit more cheerful are. Every night music is boring. The bar is dark and the many kerosene lamps on the tables in the closed area cannot be healthy. Exhaust gases are toxic. Many people had cough and did not know where. Very friendly the staff was. Although the suit wearer every few minutes of its' gentle pressure ' on the few officials short presence exercised, they never frustration shown. There are thankfully people. Even if you the whole day club must. Also the room maids were great and friendly. The best thing was the check-out. No question, if it pleases or similar. Not even a goodbye or good trip home. Nothing. Remaining coal grab and backroom. We will this hotel on all the friends and relatives, and in the well-known travel agency highly recommended. The next vacation again a Riu holiday. read hotel review
