Negative Reviews

Wi-Fi is an issue

Guests are disappointed that the Wi-Fi does not work well. It may be slow, or it may simply stop or time-out. The resort is aware of the issue and will do all they can to assist with providing SIM cards and USB dongles that will get you online.

Some of the rooms are a little dated

While there were no particular issues with the rooms noted by guests, some did say that they found rooms to be a little dated, particularly the rooms not on the beachfront. They may benefit from some refurbishment.

Breakfast is not the best

Some guests have had negative things to say about the standard of breakfast, saying that either the portions were on the small side or that the breakfast was the same old thing every day.
