I loved this place. Everything about it was exactly what I needed. If there was ever anything not quite right, they rectified it immediately and without question. Elieth is a server there and every time we saw her, she greeted us with the biggest smile. She was helpful and attentive and even made sure that my friends and I didn't... More

We ended our tour with a 3 day stay here and I loved it. There were several activities offered and I didn't have time to do them all. They had packages for snorkeling, horseback riding, whale watching, paddle boarding, and ATV tours. The wifi didn't work in the rooms but it worked well in the restaurant, lobby, and pool area....

Had to stay here as part of our tour package. What a disappointing four day end to our eight day tour. Where to start with this place????This place needs so much updating. We had upgraded to ocean view only to realize when we got there that the ocean view villas had no TV's and no AC in the kitchen/living room... More
