The hotel & the beach is very very clean & hospitable . We were happy with food being vegetarian I was given special choice & attention. The swimming pool is very nice & sports during day is fun. At night it's nice to see traditional dances with dinner.

In our room you could see some monkeys on the balcony. But be carefull with your stuff at the pool because someties a big babboon would steal food and the little...

I love this resort! Absolutely the best. The staff here are great. They're always smiling and very helpful. Also in the morning, a few of the staff have a welcome/Goodmorning song which they perform. The resort is very spacious, with 3 different eating areas and 3 different swimming pools and bars. We got the all inclusive package which was great...

Almost everything was good. Only one thing we would like to change was food - a bit boring and too local. The rooms were clean, stuff very friendly , very close to the beach and nice location - full of monkeys:)

November is an off peak period, meaning if you are someone like me who does not fancy crowds, this is a good time to have some time off the hustle and bustle at good rates. We opted for an all inclusive package and my friends - who had children below age 5– found the menu very accomodating. The view of...
