We arrived to a friendly greeting and a complimentary upgrade when we mentioned it was our wedding anniversary. The reception staff were all really welcoming and very helpful when it came to making restaurant reservations for us and answering our questions.
The rooms were big, modern and clean and we had an ocean view! They are quite pricey, but we felt that they were worth it.
Only slight (and this is really slight!) issue is that the pool area loses the sun about 4pm so it can get pretty chilly down there and in the hour or so beforehand, everyone tries to shuffle their sunbeds up to the sunny patch - and there aren't really enough beds/ room to allow for everyone to sunbathe.
