The beach was lovely but there were far to many beach boys trying to sell the hotel guests tours and other items. You could not do anything on the beach as they would run up to you or after you depending how far away you were. Thank heavens for the security as I would not have felt safe sitting on... More

I never sleep or relax on a beach. I always think of stuff and run around, etc. This was easily the most relaxing beach I have ever been to. I actually fell asleep while reading and did not even realise. WOW! When the tide comes in it is a GREAT swimming beach.

Awsome place. Food was great. Services with a smile. Good entertainment. Yes there is seaweed but we had absolutely awsome walks at low tide into the beach. The cleaning staff laid flowers on the bed . Had a great holiday we will be back
