Lovely resort with friendly staff. Big, clean rooms. Decent wifi. Evening meal was excellent value for money. Only slight annoyance was the number of insects at night...I guess no surprise given the lush vegetation. And do they really need to charge to use the in-room safe??? An unnecessary annoyance.
