Just return from a truly amazing family vacation. The resort is a great size & VERY clean. Great beach, clear water...snorkeling. We really enjoyed all the restaurants. Frederique & Egg Boy were fantastic! The most unique thing about this resort is the remarkable service....everyone greets you with a smile on their face. My children have never had so much fun!...
