“Stay away from the Beach Bar but go to the Beach!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2009

It is a great place to enjoy the beach which has low wave activity and space to enjoy some privacy. The sand is smooth and white with enough room to lay out with out being on top of someone...unless you want to!
The only draw back is the beach bar! The bar that locates most of the pick up points for taxi service is quite discusting and has rude, very rude service!! After being treated like royalty on the cruise, it is a severe shock to be ignored, snubbed, and scammed over a lousy mix drink. Although the bar has all the characteristics of a bar right out of a beach movie, the service and discusting habbits that border line are a health risk make it a horror movie! I personally witnessed the person that calls then selves a "bar tender" empty a used glass of ice back into the ice bin that is used to make the drinks...YIKES! They wash their glasses in stagnant water that looks like it has been used for a week....but I degress, go to the Beach, but avoid the Beach Bar!

“nice way to relex”

Sandy smooth carpet beach. White sand. My daughter collected lots of unique shells to make neckless for her friend to give as a souvenir. Good chance to find coral pieces if you are lucky.
