Wow, this place is awesome! I can't think of anything not to love! Every room has a view, the pools are just steps away from the beach. It's not crowded, often we are the only ones in the pool. There are 24 hour guards who keep an eye on everything. Next door is a restaurant/bar that has a huge variety... More
