Hotel is beautiful, but nothing different than a hotel in South Beach or Hawaii. The beach is beautiful. White sand and clear green water. Service was slightly better than a typical McDonalds. There are three sections of rooms; make sure to ask for ones closest to beach if you decide to stay here. I will never return here. Did I... More

The rooms are dark, there is no room service and no bath robes.The a la carte, Pizzaria, on the beach is convenient and popular. We had a half cooked... More

We went here on honeymoon as spent 3 nights after having spent 4 next door at Hideaway. The rooms were smaller than expected but comfortable. The food was great - a good range and tasteful. Service was noticeably better than what we experienced at the Hideaway. The swimming pool area is great and the highlight was the pier they have... More

This is a lovely resort. Private beach. All inclusive except premium brand drinks and some restaurants. Very nice. Downsides are the pool is salt water and the service staff at the pool are extremely slow so going directly to the bar for drinks is highly recommended for more prompt service. Also English understanding is hot and miss. Some speak very... More

We spent 8 days in this wonderful place spoiling ourselves. Immaculate gardens and settings, a private beach with fine white sand and a sunset from the Jetty (bar) with a glass of wine was second to none. Go for the deluxe rooms with a beautiful view.
