I booked this because it ranked #1 on tripadvisor but was little disappointed. First off, it doesn't feel like a resort but more like a regular motel. Yes, the room was a bit larger than a regular room with microwave, extra sink etc., but it smelled damp and looked like it needed a revamp (wet stains on ceiling, lose toilet paper holder etc). Setting and beach is great but there are lots of places along the same road and I wonder if their beaches aren't the same. Breakfast was also pretty standard as you'd expect in most places - self service, styrofoam plates, plastic cutlery...So, while it wasn't bad I don't think I'd go back- I"d look for a place with a better price-return ratio. It's also quite far away form the city center, so don't go there unless you are willing to drive.
