  • 8.0.Very good

    Lovely spot - food got a bit tired

    Pros - excellent location with great local restaurants outside of the hotel, breakfast is fantastic, access to the beach and walking the cliffs was perfect. Al Quima restaurant was divine. Incredible. Cons - children's pool is right next to the adult pool, all-day dining options do not exist, only a la carte during the day was basic menu and not great, evenings food option was buffet, two a la carte options required you to book in advance and they weren't great.
