If you read "how it is" from 1/25/14 review it is spot on. We loved our "cool" room, even though the bed was hard. Asked for a cushion and it was fine. The air conditioning worked better than anywhere I have been, always the perfect temp. Musty smell gone day one. Rooms needed a comfortable place to sit. Was disappointed in paying near $40 for wifi. We thought the help was very good, honest and friendly, rooms very clean. Everyone seemed to leave items out and nothing stolen. Food is mostly buffet so . . . its buffet. Still not bad. Biggest negative, if you want a walk-out beach, its not here. There is a rocky corral waterfront, good for snorkeling, but not beach swimming. One big pool with good area for children. At least you know where they are. A little competition for chairs but not a crowded feeling.
Best part, dive here! Dressel Divers were outstanding instructors! Thanks Tyler. You can fully be certified in 3 days, inexpensively. Many diving voyages at various times and a spectacular reef.
If you go to town be prepared to be haggled. Just ignore and go where you want. There is a small dress shop where they are making the dresses as you watch. Priced $10-$30!!
Overall, not a place for pampered, picky people, but still beautiful, sunny and 85. And so much to do at resort and around the island.
