Got the room for 2 nights at half price at hotwire.
It's beautifully landscaped yet it doesn't look artificial.
Great beach for a family with small kids like ours, although boats passing by could be bit annoying. Crystal clear water and fish swim around you while you walk on white powdery sand.
It seemed like the place was not very busy. Don't know why, we loved it. It used to be Hyatt but now it seems like independent.
Pool bar had limited but very affordable menu. The main restaurant was mostly serving nice (but pricey buffet) They also have pizza and gelatto place.
The live band was pleasant and not too loud.
The free lobby wifi was a joke and the $16/day for wifi elsewhere seemed excessive, but I guess they need to make their money somewhere.
The place if far away from everything, which can be both good and bad. In any case you must rent a car or spend a fortune on taxi.
I'd definitely would like to come back.
