  • 6.0.Good

    On plus side control of mosquitos very good, cleanliness excellent, staff good, food has gone down though frequent shortages, restaurants have menus that look good but meaningless as most popular dishes never available. Food reliance is on the buffet in grand memories. How many bars do you know of that run out of orange juice! Staff remain very helpful though.

    Location of the hotel is perfect, close to the (beautiful) beach. Swimingpools are nice. Englisch is 'spoken', but not by everybody from the staff. Rooms are clean. The buffet is oké, a lot of choice. Freshly made dinners do take some time.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Détente, soleil et mojitos

    Un hôtel avec des prestations "all inclusives". La plage est très bien située et le lieu véritablement calme par rapport à d'autres hôtels. Le personnel est très serviable et attentionné. Nous y avons effectué notre lune de miel et avons eu droit à une charmante attention de la part de la direction (bouteille de Cava sur la plage avec un saxophoniste pour nous jouer des airs romantiques, cela peut paraître cliché mais cela reste un très bon souvenir).Un lieu parfait pour se détendre après avoir bien vadrouillé dans l'île.

    Spiaggia molto bella di sabbia fine bianca e mare azzurro molto trasparente. Scarsa igiene nella gestione di alimenti e bevande nel ristorante e nei bar.Nessuna sostituzione delle lenzuola in 10 giorni

    Estuvimos en la parte de only adults en el Sanctuary. Lo mejor, la zona de la piscina y la playa, que es preciosa. El resto no considero que esté a la altura de un cinco estrellas. Limpieza dudosa en las zonas comunes, puertas despintadas... En nuestra habitación el secador de pelo estaba arrancado de la pared. Detalles sin importancia que dan sensación de instalaciones venidas a menos. La comida correcta, pero nada que ver con otros resorts que hemos visitado. Otra cosa a remarcar es la gran cantidad de mosquitos. És algo exagerado, de modo que creo que el hotel tendría que adoptar medidas al respecto (fumigación, mosquiteras, evitar agua encharcada...). Pasas unos días allí y sales literalmente acribillado.

    Instalaciones anticuadas y en mal estado, limpieza en los baños comunes muy deficiente, calidad de la comida y las bebidas mala, el personal no es profesional y dan un servicio de muy baja calidad, se ve que la dirección del hotel no está presente o no motiva al personal, no recomendaría a nadie este hotel. El precio cobrado con la calidad ofrecida no se corresponde en absoluto.

    Die Ausstattung des Hotels sowie der Service sind gut. Es direkt am wirklich sehr schönen Strand von Cayo Santa Maria mit eigenem Strandbereich. Am ersten Abend konnten wir leider keine Reservierung für ein Restaurant mehr vornehmen und mussten somit ins zugehörige Nachbarhotel ins Buffetrestaurant. Hier war das Essen nicht sonderlich gut, in den A-la-carte-Restaurants hingegen schon! Für diejenigen, die es möchten, gibt es unterschiedliches Animationsprogramm.

    Personale gentile e disponibile, camera spaziosa e pulita. Letto inspiegabilmente molto umido nonostante l'aria condizionata. Cibo e bevande decisamente sotto la media. Spiaggia comoda e molto bella.
