That's right. The beach is invisible.
We had put up in this resort for a night. It was more of a Picnic, Since we a group of 17 people had booked 2 one bedroom suite for a weekend outing.
There's no beach here. Putting that word in their name is just to lure people.
That said, the rooms were in a good condition with everything working fine.
It has got a central swimming pool which provides some relief in an otherwise dull resort. We had gone here in the peak summer we should be avoided at all costs.
The whole night a stink was emanating from the sea side because instead of a beach there is this swamp.
The food we didn't try so can't comment.
It's only worthwhile as a picnic resort during the winter season. Otherwise just give it a miss.
