Friends stayed here and we visited to eat and drink at the restaurant. The atmosphere is so relaxed, the food was beautifully presented and delicious! The beach is right there, the pool is situated centrally, there were lots of people proving how popular this place is. Attentive wait staff.

The location of the hotel is great. It has a spacious feel as it is spread over a fairly wide area and right on the sandy beach. However it is badly in need of a facelift ! It is very tired looking compared to some of the other hotels in a similar price bracket. Also if you don't have children... More

A wonderful place to stay with great facilities especially if you have children. We found the staff very friendly and helpful. We had a lagoon view room which was handy to everything. Happy hour every night is well worth it, cocktails cheap. Found the meals reasonable but mostly deep friend. Beautiful breakfast with lots of fruit. The rooms were nice... More

We booked a beachfront Deluxe room well in advance and got a really good price. The view from the room is absolutely stunning. Well worth what we paid for. The view is the main selling point of the room and i'd highly recommend spending the extra money to be able to sit on your balcony and sip a cocktail while... More

We had a room with the ocean views, and very convient location, room # 113 to be exact. Breakfast place was just a few steps down. Mel's bar and restaurant were right there. Snorkeling was right in front of the resort. The pool was small, and full of kids most of the time. But the beautiful ocean was right there... More

Great place to stay. Location is perfect. The only thing is the hotel is a little tired. But thats to be expected and in all honesty the beds were comfy and the staff were amazing so thats all that really matters. The floors could do with being mopped daily as our feet were constantly filthy which was gross. The Night... More
