This resort is very quiet, with cottages spread across a large area. We had a sea facing cottage and enjoyed the sunrise each morning. On Jan 3rd when we were preparing to check out, we saw a large pod of about 50 to 60 dolphins from our room. We rushed to the beach and watched them for about 20 minutes as they moved South. They were only about 100 meters from the beach! We were told by the staff at the resort that this happens once in about 3 months and we were very lucky!
The resort is very spacious with large open areas and direct access to the beach. There are a number of mature trees, a kid size swimming pool (which they try to clean every day) and a large parking lot. The security is also very good especially at night. We were told that the rooms were renovated recently and we found them to be very clean and spacious. The restaurant has also improved a lot since we last visited a few years ago. We had many meals there and the cooks were able to prepare the items to our taste. The price is also reasonable. The dining area is very spacious.
The service is a bit laid back, but the people are genuinely nice and courteous. They do their best to be helpful.
