The resort is nicely situated near the airport (don't worry, there is no aircraft noise!), has multiple swimming pools, and great ocean access. Rooms are clean, but we got stuck in a "mountain-view" room that was mostly a rooftop view smh The only big cons were 1) the unheated swimming pools could get quite cold, and 2) the dinner options....

We stayed here one night on a Sunday - had the pool view room, which didn't have much of a view since we were ground floor level. It was a beautiful resort with a big swimming pool with waterfall structures and 2 jacuzzis. The restaurant was delicious for dinner, especially the kale salad. The portions were big (we end up...

The room we had, had a bit a moisterred smell. But the view was excellent. Also clean and big enough. We used air freshner then ist was gone. Breakfast was good, but if it is expensive. The resort ist excellent, the beach nice but the waves were to high to go swim.

This is our second stay at this resort and we were not disappointed. The grounds are beautiful, the sound of the ocean calming, and the staff very friendly. Rooms are updated and quiet. The location is great- halfway between the north and south shore adventures. For personal reasons, I need to drink a lot of water, and they don't allow...

Not enough amazing words to say about this beautiful resort and restaurant. The salmon was like nothing I'd ever tried before absolutely divine and my favourite part was hot tub shaped as a volcano whilst the choir of roosters and chickens sang their songs. A wonderful experience
