    Lovely, clean, quiet, well run hotel. Very helpful staff. Enough lounge chairs, fresh towels daily. Annoying beach vendors (as is the case with most beachfront properties) No air conditioning so a little hot at night but manageable with fans. Would gladly go again.

    The restaurant could have been better and cheaper. We ate at other places along the beach. The pools were great, especially the one which had plenty of shade around it. Staff were willing and helpful. We liked the reef shoes which were supplied
