“Beautiful Beach and Scenery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

The beach was beautiful, with a view of the mountains on the other side of the water. Nice, clean, white sand. Only down side was the vendors, but as with anything else you just keep telling them no.

“Lovely Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

We passed through this beach to go to our catamaran, and the beach was very beautiful, the hotel itself seemed to be under construction, parts of it though.

“Loved it!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

As Lifestyle members, we spent a day here. There is a private area just for us and the best part-only 10-15 people were there with us. Service is absolutely fantastic. All were very attentive to our needs. The water is calmer here and has fewer rocks. Good food, great service, calm waters-wonderful day!

“Beautiful calm beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

Great place to walk and bathe - really beautiful! Even though it was mostly raining, the water was warm. Because of the recent storms, there was a lot of wood chips and debris from nearby rivers on the beach and washing up at the end of each wave.
