We stayed there for 2 nights. The rooms were just okay, nothing extraordinary. Food was really good, so was the breakfast. They do have a beach nearby, 5 minutes walk across bushy terrains. Service is fine. Mobile network is not easily available and one needs to get out of their campus to receive signals. Overall, a bit overpriced.

Our room was charming and had a very comfortable bed as well as a waterfall shower and a hammock outside. The site is far enough from the beach that most insects will not bother you at night, but close enough to get up and see the sunrise. The bar is well stocked and the staff are knowledgeable and friendly. The... More

Arrived a day earlier than expected and were treated to a warm welcome and no problem with having a room for the extra night. Room was lovely and only downside was it was so warm and humid we couldn't sit on balcony in the evening (not hotels fault). Food in restaurant is excellent and AJ the waiter was very attentive....
