Negative Reviews

Additional expenses

Some guests reported that the resort is overpriced. The meals and drinks were found to be expensive, as were the additional charges for services such as Wi-Fi, children's club, use of the fitness center and spa services. To travel out of the resort, you'll need to hire a car or taxi, and some guests found the taxi service to be expensive.

Long wait at the buffet table

Guests also reported that during busy periods, long waiting times in the cue for the buffet could be expected. Some guests also had the impression that the resort was understaffed, or perhaps overly busy, as sometimes they waited for long periods before their order arrived.

Ocean full of seaweed

The beaches are typically pristine and clean, however during certain periods they can become full of seaweed. Guests who encountered this were disappointed that the hotel did not take steps to clean up the beaches.
