Five star for subtropical garden, three stars for the rest

The park-like grounds, 5 star. Lobby: open floor plan, therefore no air conditioning, old worn furniture. Restaurant for half board guests: like lobby. Reminiscent of a simple garden with a view of bathers during breakfast and dinner. Pool: is before the mentioned above. Restaurant. Nice view on the sea, pool chairs on the betonplaton, little shade, quite narrow. Seaside: no beach! No access to the sea! And tidy on a dike between the lagoon and the sea. Everything very beautifully designed with palm trees, lawn and sandy sunbathing area. Also open fish restaurant. Beach between 150 and 500 metres: public! ... By local fishermen use. (interesting) Rooms: small (1 chair for 2 people, no table)! Open wardrobe in the bathroom. Airconditioning food were okay. Very clean also under the french bed. Service here very friendly.
