Come for the view - but stay away from the food. Unfortunately being on an island if you stay in the hotel they have you on the food part - so it might be a good time to start that diet. But they do have villas which I believe have cooking facilities if you want to pack your own food across from the main land. There is a small convenience store $4 for a can of beans just to give you an idea. Now $4 for a can of beans may be a little pricey you say but compared to $42 for the worst meal I have had in years - an absolute bargain - and would have been a better meal.
Staff was very friendly for the most part, but the one of the two restaurants that they had open at the resort was very poorly run and staffed and more like a dive dinner quality and service, but with a premium price tag. Breaky buffet style was served in this one and only place on the resort - food very average - but good luck finding a clean table - I had to clear plates off of our table and wipe it down with a napkin on the the one and only time we had breaky there after our 1st horrendous diner meal there as we stayed away from it even though breaky was included in our room price. They also sold pizzas at night - this was most definitely the safest and most popular choice from the other patrons.
