We stayed here for a few days during our honeymoon and we loved the relaxed feel of this property. The bar had a great atmosphere, friendly staff, and good food. The room we had overlooked the lagoon, it was updated and just perfect! The lagoon was by far my favorite part!! Get there in the morning or just as the sun is setting- there was barely anyone there and the snorkeling is great. The waves crash on the rocks guarding the lagoon and wow!! what a show! Watch the sunset here-it's stunning!! Pool area can get crowded and chairs go quickly so consider renting a cabana- this was the only negative I can think of. Great location for walking to shops and sites too!

The hotel itself was nice, the room was spacious and clean. They were very short staffed but worked hard to overcome it. The restaurant is open air and the food was good. The breakfast is huge. The pool area is small. Lots of shops, restaurants and bars within a short walking distance.

Great location around all the restaurants, parking is easy and cost not bad, we had a corner king oceanfront which is the best decision ever, can see all! Sunset, dolphins, and the show! Only thing is pretty thin walls and not great sound proof, but can’t complain, had a wonderful time here!
