The resort is great with good food and excellent service. Will definitely go back soon. Took good care of our children and was always ready to serve anytime the waiters were called upon for room service. Plus good housekeeping team

Had a great time at the resort. Pleasant staff, beach front accommodation and great service. We spent the long weekend at the resort as a romantic get away, planning to go back with the family. Highly recommended and reasonably priced
