In my opinion, this resort is for people (whether you are single, a couple, or a family) who really want to take a break from the hustle and bustle of city life. Location is far from the main city (around 1.5-2 hours away). You either have to take a shuttle that the resort provides or call in advance for a taxi ride.
The resort has villas where you can stay in, instead of a hotel. The villas are about 2-5 minutes away from the beach. Beach area is rather small, compared to other resorts. It's not a long beach. Facilities are good. Don't expect too much on the pool though as it is only 4 feet deep (max) and water is hazy. Gym is small. They have children's play area. For food, they serve several dishes. Plenty of desserts. Their water though tastes different. Staff are nice and helpful although in one instance, they did not fix the light when I told them it was not working. In our room, the bath tub's knob to drain the water was not working as well.
You can also go to different islands nearby (about 1 hour away) to snorkel, have seafood lunch, visit the marine sanctuary, etc... Otherwise, you just stay in the hotel, relax, have a spa, swim, play beach volleyball, etc..
It's worth trying out, especiallyt for couples. I believe they have couple's suits and they have buy 1 take 1 massages.
