The beach itself is quite narrow, but it is soft, not rocky sand with clear, warm ocean. The seaweed is brought in by the current on some days, but that varies. Definitely the best beach on the Lifestyles complex.

Only went in once...too much sand mixing the water. That's Not normal. I don't recall that happening at any other beach I have gone to. Sand everywhere.

Awesome time. Real luxury. Great entertainment - shaggy and Romeo 911 made the holiday so much fun. Also Thursday night party with fire breathing from shaggy and a dancer is not to be missed.

the water was nice and warm, gets very windy in the afternoon. they limit the vendors on this beach so you are not constantly hounded to buy. it is not a beach that you go and lay on. that's why the resorts all have the beds and hammocks.

Clean, good security not too crowded. Loved the shops and the buffet. When we asked for directions some of the security staff didn't understand English. But did notice how they helped people who had trouble walking up the stairs. Very caring people

The beach was not nearly as big as advertised on the website for the resort. The water was dirty, and it was annoying constantly having people come from the market to try to sell you things. It made it hard to enjoy the water when people would not leave you alone.

Unfortunately I did not like anything about the beach. I wish there would have been a security presence around the beach area of the resort for it's patrons. Unfortunately, we were hounded by people selling stuff. It was not very relaxing. I didn't feel safe!

Overall an ok location and I still would prefer it over the Tropical Restort. I like the fact that it was pretty large and multi levelled. (Unless you have a lot of luggage)
