I was at this resort for the last 2 weeks of December, 2012. The resort itself is first class. It is excellent in most respects, except one of importance. IF you like to swim in the ocean rather than the resort's pools, be warned that this resort, and every other excellent, expensive resort along this particular shoreline, has a sea bottom lined with jagged, sharp rocks that wholly impede your access into the water. Further, one has to walk out over these rocks for a considerable distance to get to a shallow sandbar, and then even farther to a depth where swimming is comfortable, and at this distance there are boats and jet skis whizzing by.The closest beach where one can safely walk out into the ocean on sand is a 25 minute walk away. In addition, there was a HUGE amount of debris that washed into the shoreline every day. Not just slimy reeds, but also pieces of plastic bags and other crap. You couldn't come out of the water without being covered in slimy reeds. Due to this one factor, I would never stay in this area again.
