Another highlight of this hotel is that it is touted to be a very family-friendly hotel which includes two restaurants, ten beach bars, and an outdoor swimming pool. My family and I checked in and were instantly impressed by how warm and friendly the staff were. The well designed rooms and great food offered were a delight especially for my ten year old son who could not get out of the pool the whole time we were there.
