This is the place to come to if you want a great hotel but without the hefty price tag and unnecessary stiffness that comes with the super deluxe hotels. Within 5 minutes' drive of the airport and with its own private beach, I don't think you can go wrong with this hotel. Don't expect 5 star service and facilities, but... More
