Do not go here if you want a romantic experience with your significant other. It's just an ok resort that is far away from any real attractions. All there is to do is mostly just sit around on a small strip of beach. Think overall the beach is more of an afterthought and no real attention has been given to...

We visited this resort with a 4 month old. It was our first vacation after the baby and we had a lovely time. The resort is very baby and child friendly, we had a lovely ocean view room.

Great with babies and kids. Everything you need to - if your kids let you have it - have a great time with your beloved ones. Guarded Beach, swimming pool, pirate playpark, football and beach volley field - everything within 50 meters from your room. Recommended for anyone with babies and young kids.
