Pros: Breakfast
Cons: Unacceptable wi-fi , bath-tubs on deck are ridiculous ( only seating on deck causes you to stare at ugly porcelain tub rather than any view

remove the tubs and let your guests enjoy the decks

Pros: Views from the swimming pool and upstairs restaurant.
Cons: From the lower units you look at a concrete wall. Not what the web page suggests. To get from the bottom units to reception is along way. Stairs only!
Location: Nice position, Far from most restaurants
Facilities: Above average; Value: Moderate; Service: Inferior; Cleanliness: Clean for now still new.; Staff are pleasant, but are ignorant of the basics. When I asked for a power adapter to charge my I Pad, they told me to go and buy one!
