The view is just awesome, the best in all the zone. The only small pending detail are some outdated rooms, looks like they are remodeling some others, so probably is just matter of time. The location is great in the middle of all the facilities, ATM is a 100m , bunch of restaurants at walking distance....

I booked a room with a partial-ocean view since it was a little less expensive, however the view was nothing less than outstanding. I liked being able to see both the jungle greenery and the ocean. I had a spacious balcony with two chairs and a small table which I used as an ottoman. It's hard not to just sit... More

Topattraction of this hotel are the round about views you get from your room or restaurant. only other positive point was the friendliness of the waiters. The negative list would be much longer but I give it a try. Start with the unfriendly reception, where beside being made to pay right away the total cost of your trip ( common... More

Very clean and comfortable room, albeit a little spartan. This type of hotel and the experience they offer is very typical of the 'resort' experience. There is no minibar, kettle or facilities in the room, but this resort model keeps the room rate down and relies on guests discretionary spending to make up the difference. It is a peaceful, well...

This place is a jewel! Not only is the 180 view stunning, but the drinks and service are exemplary. Although a hotel, they welcome visitors to use the pools, restaurant and bar. You'll not find a better view or ambiance anywhere!

The hotel is in an absolutely stunning location with beautiful views everywhere you look. The rooms are clean and nicely decorated. The beds are comfortable. The only aspect that does not deserve five circles is the food. It is overpriced and not very good. However the included breakfast is acceptable. Overall, we are very happy to be here and would...

Get a room with a view, totally worth it! If not, spend time in the restaurant as often as you can. Excellent service from the moment we arrived. Local monkeys, the Howlers, you will hear around you. Infinity pool as well as pool swim up bar. So beautiful here. A place I will never forget!
