Everything is very beautiful - the bungalows, the beaches, the restaurant. The staff is very pleasant. However, the price of the activities and everything else than the room is simply astronomical... In the end it feels like a bit of a rip-off. One example - they charge you 40€ per person for a ride to and from town, which is 10 minutes away by car!
Another thing that really bothered me was that nobody told me in advanced that the pool was closed - and actually made a lot of difference because the sea was very rough most of the days I spent there and a swim in the pool would have been an alternative.
