Ok, but weedy everywhere and a strange smell everywhere, like some rotten grass... They need to clean up the shore anyway... We liked the staff, super friendly, but the food was really average and not worth the buck.

Although there were alot of vendors they weren't too pushy. The beach was nice and i liked the "local" feel to it. When we arrived the people at the bar and the wait staff were great. I'd love to go back again.

Loved the food and how you can enjoy all the time you wish to hang in the restaurant premises. The restaurant is very close to a store where you can take snorkeling or diving tours.
