Didn't stay at the resort, but stopped for a drink at noon, ended up staying 10 hours. Staff is great. Food and drinks amazing. Night show few nights out of the week. Great place to lay out for some sun, sip drinks and enjoy good food.

Spent few days here. The rooms were reasonably sized and we were upgraded to premier deluxe by manager for no reason. During our stay the air con was very cold and then was leaking water on floor. Tv wasn't working. Everything was fixed reasonably quickly. Mosquitos were very bad at this hotel. 3 pools, onsite bar and rest which caters... More

Drinks in the bar are expensive. The only thing we didn't like is the beach. There is a big rock in front of the hotel. But beautiful... More

We arrived with no reservation, knowing from an online check what are the prices. When checking in, the prices were higher than online, so we booked the room via Hotels.com.
