We stayed three nights and it was awesome snorkelling in the lagoon and seeing all the tropical fish up close and swimming with the turtles feeding on the sea grass. Fantastic buffet meals seafood galore. What a wonderful restful time we had Thanks for the wonderful service, clean comfortable rooms and a great stay on the beach.
