This is a beautiful hotel. With amazingly great service and great rooms.
As you are checking in, they bring you drinks, give you a neck massage. Off to such a great start. The rooms are also gorgeous. The bathrooms are big and opens up to the bedroom. There are two sinks so you and your partner won't be fighting over sink space. The bed's wonderful. There's a small balcony. Not amazing, but pretty cool still. The rooms are great.
Breakfast is decent too. The spread was good and pretty tasty. Not amazing but definitely average good.
The pool was pretty, but we had very little chance to use it as it rained quite a bit when we were there. I felt sorry for the pool boys who had to constantly turn the chairs and bring the pads to shelter or pick tables from the pool whenever the storm blows in.
Now comes the bad part. There is a design flaw in the architecture. When the rain comes, it COMES right into the walkways. And often, the place is puddled all over. And this is on tiles. We didn't have any accidents, and I hope there weren't any.
The location was not ideal. We were far from everywhere. We rented a car which was very useful as it afforded us to go further to get food and supplies and sightseeing. The beach was not the best on the island. I prefer the north.
Conclusion: Loved the place to just flake at the hotel. The hotel itself is great but it's location and certain design flaws work against it. May go back.
