We spent a week at this resort, and honestly were a little upset upon arrival as saw it listed as 4.5 stars... But later on we found the beauty in this place - even though we were told it is high season now, it was not overcrowded and staff did a good job making us feel comfortable during our stay....

Had a hard time relaxing on the beach, vendors we're...
