“Ein wirklich sehr schönes Hotel, äußerst geschmackvoll und ruhig, alles sehr sauber, total nettes Personal – uns hat es an nichts gefehlt. Das Essen war für uns außergewöhnlich und es gab eine riesige Auswahl am Buffet, auch für Vegetarier. Das Yoga am Morgen ist sehr professionell und auch die Massagen sind sehr gut. […]”


“Recomiendo TOTALMENTE este lugar, por: Su playa paradisíaca de gran extensión, La calurosa acogida del personal de recepción, Las actividades propuestas, variadas, GENIALES y sobre todo SUPER bien guiadas por Afeef […] Y por último una especial mención a todo el equipo cocina, restaurante, bar (una pena no acordarme de todos sus nombres), es el MEJOR EQUIPO hosteleria de todos los lugares en los que he podido estar!
