Interior

A pleasant reception desk is shared with the Mimosa and monopolises a functional looking lobby. A light wood panelled bar has stylish arches but the tall white stalls look a little out of place.

Glass topped tables and functional looking sofas do little to inspire. A dining room is well furnished with wicker dining chairs and brown and white fabrics.

Rooms: 148

The compact and raised pool area offers a very narrow pool surround which accommodates a number of blue sunloungers and railings protect one side of the area. There is little in the way of vegetation or natural shade.
