Wouldn't recommend for families - perhaps a good hideout for backpackers who want to chill out in the beach. The restaurant was not offering anything. The only person working at the resort seemed like a very sincere worker - but the owner was definitely uninterested in customer service/feedback. Beware : the construction is incomplete

The actual property has 7/8 rooms all with a beautiful view and is about a 50m walk from the beach. The pool was well maintained and always clean. The food was delicious with...
