First experience was not so positive; we didn't prepare well enough to expect the drive from the airport to the hotel which took close to an hour. Then, the reception at the hotel was perfect, small local drink, cold towels etc. The room at first gave a bit of a "dated" feeling. It's simply not the most modern place, like... More

The rooms need a little bit of renovation, yet very clean and comfortable. The staff are very dedicated and helpful. The sandy beach is perfect for swimming and snorkeling. The best thing is...
