It was lovely and staff great. As older people we could have used a railing for getting in and out of at least one pool and a few more lights in the evenings for walking back and forth from restaurants to room.

We had an excellent stay at RTP. The staff are wonderful. Our room was clean and spacious. All the rooms are close to the beach and pools. The food is well prepared and there are many options. Management was excellent and cares about their guests.

Mycket vänligt och familjärt. Maten inte så bra, för lite färsk mat t ex fisk och grönsaker. Frukosten enkel om inte man köper till från menyn.
