Just a beautiful resort. The pictures are accurate; it's gorgeous huts with balconies or patios outside to little lagoons. So picturesque and relaxing. You walk through the village of all the huts and down three steps and you are at Cabana beach, with beach chairs (free for Kontiki guests) and beach beds (extra money). We were not divers or snorkelers, so I can't comment on that, but it's a nice, quiet beach. Not "secluded" but not "crowded" either (we went during a potential downtime, between Thanksgiving and Christmas). There's only 1 restaurant (its scenic, but meh), but one block away is the BLVD with tons of restaurants/shops/etc. There's also a shopping shuttle that runs twice a day (we didn't use it; we rented a car). Others have commented that the beach is "loud" and can be heard from the resort but we only heard the bass one night (granted, we were in the hut farthest from the beach). Even though I've characterized the rooms as huts, they have full amenities, bath tub and shower, TV, and free wi-fi.
