I stayed here for 2 nights with some friends and we had a great stay. Getting to our room involved walking up quite a number of stairs, which got a little tiring but the view was really nice. I would recommend a room closer to the beach that would require less stairs.
The pool was nice and the service provided by the staff throughout the whole experience was great. The food from the a la carte menu by the pool is pretty good but obviously more pricey than other places on the island.
There is good wifi coverage, which was was a great help.
I booked a dive with the hotel's scuba company in front of the hotel. It was easy and convenient to book and they allowed me to charge back to my room. The service was great and the guys were really friendly but the dive itself was definitely substandard and way overpriced! The maximum depth was only around 10m and there was not much to see under. I would definitely not recommend booking a dive with them as you will feel cheated for the price you pay
Great overall experience with the hotel though and I would recommend staying there. Very relaxing!
