Our group of 15 had this beautiful resort all to ourselves.
We were picked up just outside the cruise terminal by representatives from the resort.
We were the only group here on this day, and everyone had palapa seating.
There were also hammocks, and patio seating that had WiFi.
The beach was lovely, and the water calm and welcoming. Although I didn't snorkel, several from our group did and enjoyed the variety of fish they were able to see.
The drinks were delicious--I highly recommend the Fruit Cocktail, a frozen delight, packed with a variety of fruit including pineapple, mango, banana and orange. You may want to order more than one drink at a time because the bartenders did not seem used to having a drinking crowd.
Lunch was served on the patio. Each course was delicious.
I highly recommend this lovely location for cruisers looking to get away from the crowds.
One caution there is a very friendly neighbor dog who visits. Our group welcomed him, since many of us were missing our own pets. He is well behaved and very friendly, but if you are allergic, or afraid, you should be aware.
