We stayed for 4 days here and had a nice time. The resort is towards one end of the beach so it is a nice walk to the other hotels like Laguna that have more services like gifts shops, snack shops, and restaurants.
A couple of hotel staff met the boat on the beach and carried our suitcases to check-in at the poolside bar and then departed quickly before we could leave a tip. I discovered that we were not expected to leave a tip for each service but left a total tip for all employees at checkout.
The food was basic but good. We were disappointed because the food was Western and not Asian which was a letdown for us. Breakfast was basically eggs, potatoes, sausage and dinner were foods like pasta and chicken.
One thing to note is that you had to take off your footwear before going onto the wood deck at the bar and the dining room. The problem is that people left their footwear right in the middle of the sidewalk instead of off to the side. If you go please put your footwear off to the side to leave a path for walking.
The package we booked included snorkeling trips and the guides that took us out were knowledgeable and friendly. I brought my own snorkeling gear but you can rent gear there. The fish were disappointing in that they were not as plentiful compared to Hawaii.
The room was pleasant and comfortable. The shower worked great, the a/c had issues in that I could not get the room as cold as I wanted but it was adequate. Our room had a broom so we could keep it swept of sand. The entrance had a bucket of water that we could use to rinse our feet to help keep sand out of the room.
The staff spoke good English and were friendly and helpful.
