Top - absolute relaxation - super nice

  • April 2014
A gorgeous, beautiful grounds, sensational beach (the best section all hotels in the immediate vicinity), very friendly staff, animation gives itself much trouble and is never pushy - very pleasant, room wasn't anymore the newest, but the cleanliness is absolutely perfect, plentiful - is recommended excursions TUI - stars of the caribean, the food in the main restaurant was ok - culinary highlights you should not expect. For a buffet, it is absolutely ok. A small tip for the service staff is also a very fast and forestalling operation - only a small tip by the way. The tour operator ... (vivi) from TUI is also constantly locally and very hard - top. Ah - afterall spring break no trace, many us and canadian and south american in the hotel but is absolutely no problems with noise, party or dirt. In short, a top resort - very recommendable and again any time. An absolute relaxation! read hotel review

Very nice Karibik holiday

  • March 2014
We are traveling as a couple end of march april and can only provide feedback to the beginning than, that it was worth it. At first i was a little sceptical, because i had read a few negative reviews here and wanted to change the hotel. Finally, i must say, that we were glad, to be ended up here. The food is great and varied, provided you can also use the free theme restaurants. Only the buffet in the main restaurant, in the long term monotonous. The staff was friendly, and the area in good shape. In the morning it ... smelled from and to somewhat strictly, if the sprinkler of goods, but not more. There were also many kids in the hotel, which in my opinion (we ourselves have no children) were very well entertained. Annoying were only the pool chair reservations early in the morning. This should not disturb however. Towel and couch and ears to passages simply a further then i don't understand, or could all languages. And it is not the german the-). The beach was always super clean and the pool chairs were many open. It is also important, in case of defects always immediately notify, the hotel staff and the travel line worry about very quickly. Even at excursions always everything anmeckern. Highly recommended is the segway tour in the morning (with a visit to a lagoon). From the Spring Break we have heard nothing more, because the main season already past was for. What a pity, since we had adjusted ourselves to a weekend in order to experience it once (2 weeks but would be too much, according to which TUI travel line locally even worse than Ballermann mannschaftsfahrtzeiten to). Furthermore, i would like here, a large praise to the TUI management (the nice lady said vivian) to on site. Super friendly and very helpful. read hotel review
