Nice relaxing place, room was acceptable. Beach quite dirty and not easy to access. Jungle pool seems fun. Nothing much to do at night time. Go for hiking trail if you want. Recommended for excersise.

They give you a unique feeling well above the ground and the nearby shore. When lying down you can feeling a slight motion. Your luggage is delivered and collected from your front door....
