This resort is brand new and is very comfy. The rooms are very clean and give you everything you need. There's good ventilation and amenities are top notch. We stayed for two nights and we probably woulda stayed another couple if we had time.
The beach is really nice and there's a point a short stroll away were there's excellent snorkeling, and nudey beach is absolutely gorgeous.
I'm not sure how it would be in summer as the locals told us that the stingers swarm around this are in early January but there's plenty to do on the island that was the case.
The only bad thing I could say is about the transfer to the island. The crew were a quite rude and there was no personal service, but from what I understand it's not the same company, but still it took away from the atmosphere a little. Otherwise great stay, two days felt like a week!
