The resort is clean... More

They really enjoyed the kids club with Meli and Kako. They did activities everyday. These two lovely ladies help make our trip pleasant and Carley Mackenzie and Brooke miss them already.... More

The adjacent beach is wonderful and beach chairs are included into the price of the room. The staff was very friendly and my wife and I felt very welcome at... More
