crowded resort, place is not idealistic, it could get very disappointing. the place is smelly, unclean, and non hygienic for people to visit, if you need to go to a beach go anywhere but not here. restrooms, dressing rooms and paid shower rooms they're all dirty.

We was here only for a daytrip. Resort was crowded. Although water was clean, floor was rocky, mossy and slippery. Slides were dirty. Restrooms, dressing rooms and paid shower rooms they re all dirty . We rented a paddle boat and the boatman brought us farther outshore, past plantation bay, we anchored somewhere here and swam till we got tired.

Relaxing resort by the water. Plenty of water activities available. The staff are very friendly. Good meals. The rooms are very large with 2 King sized beds, There are about 7 rooms that are out over the water with a magnificent view.

Staff are all rude! Tried going there a couple of times. Each experience the same - disappointing and unpleasant! This resort has the most strange policies. The moment you walk towards their entrance gate, the guard will immediately close the gate and will tell you that only 2 persons are allowed to go inside to check the place. From the... More

Entry: there was reservation but guests who came ahead of the person who had the receipt were not able to enter the resort. 10 pax as considered excess of the number of pax per reservation walk out. it's a big shame to your customer's guests. those guests were your possible prospect clients but turn to be your loss. Exit: Only... More

The staff is rude especially Ms Tampus. I was asking for a manager to discuss a concern with the resort but I was told that the manager is only available between 8am-5pm on weekends. I can't believe that this resort has no supervisor and manager on duty during weekdays and at night. Definitely, I'm not going back to this resort... More

I have never felt strongly enought about a place to write a review before but this place needs people to know how bad it is... It is so dirty and full rubbish. The staff took things which they would not allow in the resort e.g utensils require to eat our food... when leaving they would not give them back and... More
