Reviewed October 24, 2016 via mobile

This is a huge resort. The receptionist accommodate us at villa and we really enjoyed it. There is a shuttle service to the beach if it is too hot for you to walk. The food is good. There are two restaurants one on the beach and the other in the hotel.

Great place, astonishing view, tasty food, excellent facilities, amazing entertainment shows, respectable staff, well organised program, and good time mangment. It's very necessary to take in consideration the room tip of providing slippers.
