you can`t really call this a resort, apart from the nice swimming pool theres nothing else there, the beach is not to good , but the grounds are well kept, but there is nothing going on in the way of entertainment. evenings can be a bit boring, it`s well out of the way. apart from what they call your continental...

Pros: Good space, Big Pool Friendly Staff, In-house Kayak (free) Peaceful and quiet Cons: Found a few cockroaches in our rooms Overpriced food A bit isolated and not easily accessible Pool is not very clear, a little dirty actually Management pictures are a bit deceptive... They must have been taken when the place was new.

My family stayed for a night at the resort because the discount we found at expedia was awesome. 1/3 of the actual price for the stay. When we arrived, the staff were friendly and greeted us so I was expecting big things despite the reviews here. We were ushered to our villa and we when arrived, my wife loved it.... More

Pros Resort is away from the tourist area so it is very quiet Very isolated and no peddlers nearby to harass you Friendly staff Cons The published rates are quite high for the standard you get. The rooms are okay but the rest of the place needs more upkeep. There isn't much of a beach. Room service is slow Food... More

I wouldn't recommend this place for the following reasons: First, I think the professional photos were taken back in 1997 or even earlier. The place would have been amazing back then. Management is trying to keep the place up-to-date with new toilets and a bathtub, but it doesn't help when there is no water coming in! There was no hot... More

Folks, if anyone values their hard earned cash, stay away from this place. 1-) continental breakfast is an absolute joke. 2 slices of bread, a drop of butter and jam that doesn't even cover the first half slice.
