The very quiet beach of this property (along with the dive shop) make it a place I would consider visiting again. The rooms were in desperate need of an update and the first night we arrived, a wedding reception took place with incredibly loud music, until 5 am. The manager of the hotel gave us a credit to make up for this, which we greatly appreciated as we had already signed up for diving the next day so went with no sleep. The food was plentiful but not incredibly flavorful and a little bit repetitious during our week stay. The dive staff was fantastic and would be the only reason we would probably venture back here, as the resort itself is a bit run down.
