I liked the property for the lovely scent and the way it was maintained... however the toiletries was not adequeate in our room specially it was for two. I loved the sea, the swimming pool and the singer with the buffet on one of your restuarants. The quality and selection of food was amazing. For the room i think the system in the tv is outdated and should be changed for more comfort
