My room was old, dirty, smelly, and nothing like the picture. But the staff was awesome, they're nice, friendly, and helpful. The breakfast was beyond my expectation for the type of hotel; unbelievably delicious with great variety.

The colours of water, the sand, the sunsets and the undewater life were even better than the expectations. The first accomodation was very minimal, but the room was clean. The... More

The attention was incredible, I was there with a friend, they treated us as queens. The first day when we arrived it was raining, two men were waiting for us with umbrellas and a car to... More
