This is probably the best all inclusive resort we have been to. Even with construction going on, it didn't affect us at all. I don't even know where to start without making this too long, but the food, the rooms, the beach and the entire staff made our trip one of the best! We too are a little interested to... More

We were there for a week starting January 1st. We paid for a Penthouse Suite but of course never got it as they are not built yet. No-one from the hotel apologised for this. The Noli tours rep said the we could switch to another hotel but would not have an ocean view so we declined. Had we known that... More

We recently had the pleasure of staying 11 nights at this beautiful property and can't say enough good things about the resort and the staff. We are very seasoned travelers having done 17 sun filled vacations in the past. I also work for a large Hotel chain so I know what to look for in a great resort. The food... More

Lovely resort and the people and service were exceptional but the whole experience was tempered by serious electricity issues. Multiple times a day my room lost electricity completely. It was alarming on a few occasions to be in complete darkness, as I was alone, in a strange place. It was a disappointment to be paying so much for a room... More

For the amount we paid, we could not have been happier. We both loved the resort, and will be returning. I will give a long detailed review, including all the small things I would change. Some of my comments may seem picky. My intent is to be thorough and objective. Front desk-reception-stores and lobby. Airy and pleasant. Front desk well... More

First off let me say - I am not a 1-time traveler. Just check out my creds on the left. This place is my new favorite resort! I LOVED it here! We stayed from Jan 10-17 during construction. This is a very detailed review, so bear with me. *ROOMS* The rooms were VERY clean and comfortable. We were the first... More

Three of us travelled to this fantastic little resort for an all inclusive holiday package. Yes, the resort is doing construction as other visitors have noted...and the noise was annoying. Very. But is is something that can't really be helped and everything else made up for the inconvenience. The staff were wonderful. Food was good and drinks strong! But avoid... More

Just wondering if anyone who has stayed there recently, Jan. 2015 had coffee pots in there rooms? I hate getting up at 6:00 a.m. to get coffee in the lobby. Otherwise I love this place. The snorkeling is awesome. This hotel is a perfect location for going to Yal-Ku lagoon, Xel-ha too. We love the smallness of this resort. The... More
