Such a surprise the resort was. We have been to HHI several times and had never really heard or seen this delightful accommodation. So convenient to everything. The facility is top notch all the way and would be perfect for children as well. Six stars without the cost involved.

This was a great family friendly resort. We loved the pool, although sometimes it was crowded. The beach access was great. Remember that chairs/umbrellas are seperately rented out, as are bikes, but towels are provided by the resort.

The Sonesta is spacious, modern and extremely comfortable. The rooms were large, sound efficient and meticulous. Every amenity was seen to. The food particularly lunches for the meetings was excellent. Multiple snacks and drinks were provided throughout the day. Maid service was excellent.
