For a beach vacation the hotel is adequate. At the beach one can recover (the raucous vieltrinker in the pool and you your peace). Trips are expensive and you can save. Food was very good. The staff was always friendly and good ' mood. …  read hotel review

Since we in the dark arrived, the hotel made us immediately with its blowing white stoffbahnen and colourful glass lamps a cheerful inviting impression, of the friendly front desk staff still has been confirmed. This was on the next day, when the brightest sunshine states. The grounds of the hotel is very nicely arranged and is held super cleanly. We were especially from the friendliness and warmth of the people impressed of all. An extra compliment to the chefs, as the food was very delicious. The entertainment was one of the best, the we as an experienced traveler offered got ..., so we have no evening omitted, for us to enjoy. By the way we were glad, that there are no drawers in the rooms, because we believe the laundry there could have been in the high humidity in the subjects not so well done and we could during the vacation also with walk-in wardrobe and shelves friends-) read hotel review

    Even an iron and ironing board are available. The coffee maker in the room you need not really, because the coffee from the automat tastes almost around the clock good, but the best was the chocolate.

  • Gastronomy
    6.0

    The food was simply great, well seasoned and varied. Every day there was fresh fruit, such as bananas, pineapple, maracuya, papayas, melons full. The waiters were despite the sometimes very full restaurants fast and never their good mood lost. They were warm and friendly and the even without a tip. You should still your hard work with a small recognition reward.

Beautiful small area (350 beds) only adults which also relaxing can be, with good service, good food and very friendly staff. Repair requests were quickly taken care of. Cleanliness was ok. Nice was that there was in the evening worth seeing shows were, but 24 hours peace in the plant was. If you want to party wanted had schutteleservice to the disco and casino free. Otherwise the beach bar around the clock on. Otherwise there was in the vicinity a small shopping center 'plaza' where you Hans-Peter and for reasonable money nice excursions (only german-speaking guests) can book. Who we ... particularly liked were madleine and Thomas the sports bar run by name 'Bierkönig' in the plaza where you an original Pina colada get the great tasted. Offer for - nice people - a free wi-fi. I wish all good shops Tina and Thomas in january 20214. read hotel review

Is a great hotel, friendly staff at the buffet and the restaurants. Beach is nice and great to relax, as it is very quiet, beach vendors all nice, hardly any pushy. Walking on the beach is well worth it. Around the area are some hotels and a large golf course, on the whole completely well, only little entertainment. Excursions could be excellent in the small shopping center with Hans-Peter from Germany in the ground floor book. He advises very good and the price-performance ratio! Back to the hotel: the facilities and the condition of the room was not so great ..., the food is ok, but not particularly worth mentioning. The food in the restaurants is totally peppered and not really good. The front desk staff is so rude and arrogant - almost no service at all. Therefore no four stars. You have some previous reviews really right. Conclusion: if you want a good and cheap offer gets, can easily 1-2 weeks beautiful holiday. Otherwise fits the price-performance ratio was unfortunately not. read hotel review

The plant is generally clean and really attractively decorated. The rooms are a very good size and ours even had a large balcony with a table and two chairs. The tv was very old and flickered unpleasant. The best part was the service of the staff in the restaurants - the people seemed always in a good mood and were very attentive. But there are in the area a distribution with several sellers of tried ferienpakete to sell. This is a bit of a hassle - before you are not a pitch has consulted, the people on the premises no ... peace. read hotel review

    The pool was always clean and refreshing, unfortunately you could not fit more... Every evening there was some kind of show - unfortunately much too loud. Sometimes were only 30-40 guests and it was still so loud, that you in the room the television would not hear them. Mostly it was 23 hours our erachtensnde.

    For stays of 7 days, we were checked in at 3 different theme restaurants, a food menu. That was really great. Also otherwise was the food varied and always fresh. Of course, not everything to the european taste, but who in the Karibik rumreist, the knows the. Everything was a bit sickly held...

Me and my girlfriend enjoyed our stay in large and whole good. We were from the hotel and staff very entsäuscht. Firstly we were given a run down room than superior room switched on. The room was daily cleaned properly, sheets in 5 days not changed, towels were always forget, the mini bar was not restocked. Our complaint and the entitlement to a superior room, was very badly implemented, after 8 days stay. Always again at the next day a room promised, and had 3 days at the information counter always time 2h wait, as it was called the room ... is now free and cleaned etc. In the end, but everything was still ok. Food and drinks were ok. Internet 60 Euro for a week, quite expensive. The all schmisste was, that on the beach every 10 minutes beach vendors constantly a wanted to sell something, the hotel deserves eagerly with. Within 14 days i could on the beach no one day really relax in peace and quiet read or a small nap. It was our 3. stay in dom. Rep and the worst experience. The hotel is not recommended. In future we shall only in renowned chains our holiday. read hotel review
