It's been a couple years since me and my wife visited. I recall wanting to go back once again. This resort is vary quaint, yet still covers a very good sized area with 3 very different beaches.
You will not get a 4 star experience here, but if you do not expect that and are happy with an older resort that is not exceptionally maintained you will likely be pleased you stayed here.
ONE thing that stands out is the fact, that many people we met during our visit had stayed there multiple times and some came 1 or more times a year. The staff is nice, at the time we arrived they gave us a glass of Champagne and were very welcoming.
I recommend the Cottages/bungalows over a standard room, we had proper amenities and room air conditioning. The cottage was minimal but clean and nice overall.
The beach in front of the Cottages is rocky and has slabs of concrete farther out, it's good for snorkeling and seeing lobster, other but not swimming. The Middle beach nearest the pool is great, you are pretty much waste deep for about 100 feet or more with very, very clear water.
The 3rd beach (at the time was clothing optional) was nice, visited it only once since #2 was good. A pretty long section of secluded beach with local goats frequenting some areas of it.
Overall you can stay at fancier resorts a few miles away, but you will pay more for it.
THis resort is great for the price.
