So, I was really excited about going up until we started experiencing issues with the resort's staff and our reservations. Turns out we weren't the only ones. I'm glad we had the experience, but the overall trip was pretty disappointing and the cost is WAY too overpriced for what you get. The local staff was very pleasant but the others really do not 'get it'. After reading the reviews I thought I was going to paradise. This place is NOT on an ocean, more like a lake, not exactly swimmable. The bugs were AWFUL (especially the large black flies). The accomodations were interesting but VERY unpleasantly hot (no a/c and not really a good ventilation system). I guess I would have had a better experience if I thought that the (non)local staff cared about making the experience a good one, but maybe we caught these guys on an off week!
