prickly at first but got better
Our first impression was not a very good one as we were greeted in a rather unfriendly manner. After that, it was a very pleasant experience. Great location, pool, beach. Food was good. Cleaning staff friendly. Reception staff was a hit and miss. Some good and some not so good.
