I did my research, it looked great. The staff are lovely, the rooms are nice.BUT the beach is so so dirty and polluted. When the tide is out you can see all the broken bottles and rubbish. There is no way you could safely swim in this beach. The food selection is very poor, seafood a big letdown.. The chef Scott was so lovely though so I feel really mean. GIno is adorable and he did everything he could for us as our arrival was a disaster day from hell as we got dropped off to the pier and the boat had a hole in it. Waited hours to find it wasn't coming anyway. My error for not arranging better with the hotel to get there. They really looked after us when we left. Thank you. We did leave 3 days early. The bed is ROCK hard. The massage is either in your room on around the pool with no privacy. She was not top quality that's for sure. I am honestly not wanting to be a winger, I just don't want you to be disappointed. Most of the staff have NO English, just be warned is all. It is so sad that the beach is so dirty. I understand the resort do all they can, its still sad though. On a good note, the pool is lovely, we had a pool villa up the top that they very very kindly gave us due to our horrid first day. Thank you very much. Unfortunately it was not cleaned unless I asked so got full of leaves. Even leaving a scooper would have been fine, don't mind doing that at all! Be warned, take what you need as it is very remote, no shops. Thank you Gino for your mosturiser and Scott for the razors.
