We had read all the positive reviews and heard from friends who have stayed at this resort. So it seemed like a safe bet to book our winter holiday here. We even suggested that another family join us during the holiday. And all nine people in our big group -- including five kids aged 3-10 -- had a fantastic time.
The beach exceeded our expectations (no, it's no Boracay, but still beautiful and great fun). Plenty of marine life in the private bay. And even during peak holiday season, didn't feel over crowded. Pools were the same (less the marine life).
Food was great and with breakfast buffet included, daily spending on food wasn't exorbitant.
The only complaint we could come up with was that the room we got had recently been renovated. So while it looked beautiful, it still had some of the that new room smell which led us to keep the sliding glass doors open for much of the day.
Our kids still talk about some of the fun things they did there. We will definitely go back!
