The place was beautiful. The beach was great. The waves were a little bit scary big for our small kids, but it was still a lot of fun. The staff was mediocre. They were very hard to get a hold of, since none seemed to stay on site. The guide was much more interested in playing with his girlfriend than being helpful. He did cook for us, which was nice, but he had a very hard time understanding and delivering on our requests. If you're into surfing and just relaxing, its a pretty awesome place. There are lots of seemingly random people there to surf, so even though we were the only guest, we were rarely alone. The facilities are really nice, but not kid friendly. I'm sure it would fit other people's needs far better than ours.
