Great location just a few delightful steps to the beautiful sandy beach. Sweet and smiling staff. Close to restaurants and basic tourist shopping. The pool area is also a great place, although there is no wind, so it is much warmer here the at the beachfront. The breakfast is universal something fore every taste. Loved the guava juice.

Stayed here for a week and a half in early December 2016. My friend and I both stayed in rooms in the high rise building, as opposed to the bungalows lining the pool. I was quite glad that the room was nice, well-ventilated, and with strong wifi connection as we had several days of nonstop rain. Fortunately, when the weather...
