The dirtiest water on this beach other than that everything was good and the resort is good only for relaxation not for clubbing . All the entertainment guy's are after the tourist girls I hated the fact that not to everyone tipped the bartender or any of the waiters

Beautiful resort, very friendly workers, and the best deal you can get! My husband and I kept asking each other how they are even able to profit with how little we paid! Good food - they even served lobster at the buffet!
