Beautiful surrounds, lovely service and great food. This was such a wonderful place to be but you never want to leave the compound. The personal is attentive and very friendly - always checking in on you to make sure things are going well. Highly recomended.

Place is a standard beach resort. Bars didn't have any cold beers. Bar waiters were very rude. Room a.c wasn't working, had no curtains, red ants everywhere. Food was the same everyday. Not good for a vegetarian. Would not recommend at all.
