I stayed in this resort for five days for my honeymoon. Everything was wonderful, I could say it was a real paradise: the beach, the food, the landscape, the lagoon villa... everything except the BIG COCKROACH that my husband and I found in our villa upon our arrival. The executive housekeeper and the people in the reception just apologize when... More

I visited the hotel with my family celebrating my dad's 60th birthday. It was a truly memorable and once in a life time experience. The world is too big to repeat places for people who like to travel and explore different destinations, but this is one place I wouldn't mind repeating multiple times in my life. The hotel overall, service,... More
