I visited Medina Palms with my daughter for 3 nights end of November. We had booked a junior suite 1 bedroom but we got a 2 bedroom which was very spacious. The staff were excellent and we felt the comfort of being at home. We got to kayak on the sand bank thanks to Alfonse and h

Buongiorno... io soggiornerò da voi nel periodo natalizio... dalle foto vedo che il posto e'magnifico ma come sottolineavano altri non vedo foto della spiaggia.. ho letto che e' piccola ma e' davanti all'hotel??
Buongiorno, nel periodo natalizio la spiaggia e’ bellissima. Sono quasi 4 km di spiaggia bianca fino al creek. Se non erro, ci sono delle foto della spiaggia sul nostro sito web. Comunque, essendo in un parco marino protetto, non è permessi mettere lettini direttamente in spiaggia. Ma abbiamo una zona interna con spiaggia privata a pochi metri dal mare e vicino alle piscine. Saluti, Max

Si trova proprio di fronte all’hotel, io sono andata ad agosto e purtroppo c’erano parecchie alghe ma pare fosse un problema dovuto alla stagione...😊 comunque é una spiaggia molto bella, larga e bianchissima!

"We had a beautiful penthouse apartment. The only complaint is that it is completely open upstairs, so lots and lots of mosquitoes."
"Based on the hotel's layout, you can't go wrong with any room."
"Villas closer to the sea have a great view+especially the duplex suites with roof access+a plunge pool are the best."
"The PentHouse suites mostly have a view of the sea and wonderful breezes"
"Sorry, we never made it to the rooms to check them out..."
US$ 202 - US$ 526 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
