The staff were helpful, lots...

We had read that the hotel site was undergoing renovations but in reality it was more like a construction site, with building, concrete grinding and lots of labourers there on most days. The service was very average both in the hotel and in the restaurants although there were some exceptions. While it is located on a beach, it's not 'private'...

We had booked here for three families together. The hotel rooms were spacious n nicely done with antique beds and furnitures. The property was big, green and the decors were also nice. It was so nice to walk around. The swimming pool was nice too. The breakfast buffet spread was very average, it needs improvement. We ordered room service for...

This resort is in the process of developing itself into a high end locale. The indoor/outdoor dining room is nice, the staff is accommodating. Some of the rooms are old style and comfortable. Breakfast buffet is good. Pool is gorgeous. Beach is right there.
