“Terrible beach.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Horrible stench. Ugly sand. And you are HOUNDED by vendors trying to sell you goods left & right. There is seaweed and crap all over the beach. Just go to Cabarate.

“smells like poop!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

sewage pumped into the ocean & dirty diapers and garbage everywhere. Vendors harass you and stray dogs that you must be aware of as we had one try to bite us.

“Clean, Warm, but a little small.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

There is not a lot of room in the sand for beach chairs but the water was a good temperature and it was a clean beach.

“Cute little huts and hammocks!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

This beach was wonderful. The staff, especially sexy blacky, sexy banana and mosquito were hilarious and entertaining. My friend and I personally loved the hammocks or little huts to sleep in all day (after some of the longer party nights heehee).
