The hotel is well located on very large grounds with a swimable section of shallow beach at the far end and a huge pool in the middle. A decent size reception area greets you and the front desk staff are pleasant. English is variable throughout, but expected.
The rooms are average for the price - tidy, on the small size and as other reviews have mentioned, the seaview option is bit of a stretch. We paid for the deluxe something option, but other than perhaps a larger balcony, it looked fairly comparable to friends staying in the standard at ~25% less. Unfortunately the build standard is poor - things are generally nice on the outside but there seems to be barely any insulation between rooms and you can easily hear the neigbours. We moved floors after the first night, having been kept up by a crying baby next door. Others in our group also mentioned how thin the walls were and really there is no excuse for this in a new building, marketing itself as 5 star. It would be an expensive fix to do now....
We actually liked the music by the pool. Sure, some of it was cheesy house well past its best by, and I'm surprised it is even allowed at near dance volumes occasionally, but no real issue for us and the good tracks were enjoyable. Perhaps a compromise would be for just an hour or two late in the afternoon as prep for cocktail hour, not from lunchtime for the day?
There are plenty of drink/bar/food options scattered around and plenty of staff to serve. You could very easily stay self contained there, but other than the great breakfast, the food is patchy and there are better options in the small town a short distance (cab/bus not walk) up the road, including a fairly happening authentic nightlife.
Internet is free (nice), and room service efficient. I think we were just coming off peak season so it was a great time to be there as I could see the small beach part in particular becoming bit of a bun fight when things are fully booked out. We stayed there five nights and saw several functions in that time, so that needs to be factored. Again, not an issue for us.
It is a nice resort hotel with some great pluses outweighing a few small negatives that are mostly fixable.
