    The resort needs a facelift. The comforters and pillows are lumpy. They only give you one key even if it's a double room. The food is adequate. However, it's right on the beach which is private and the staff is really friendly.

    There is but you have to buy a wifi card to use. It's really buying a password on a piece of paper. There's a daily fee - I think it's a daily five US dollars for wifi access.
