Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Pros: Food was very good and staff were very nice. I liked the beach/water for its stillness Cons: Rooms were horrible. Drinks were advertised as Premium. They were not even close. All well liquors. I was outright lied to by the gentleman setting up tours. He quoted me one price and when i came back to pay, it was $15 more pp. ( and we had 10 people). I called him on it - i had a family member as witness, and he still lied to my face. For that reason alone, i would recommend this resort

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The staff were the friendliest people ever and made sure we were taken care of every step of the way. Onsite covid testing made it easy to walk over from the beach to the testing site and get our results in less than 5 minutes. The beach was beautiful and the staff worked hard to make sure it was clean as there was a lot of seaweed that came up, they spent 2-3 hours in the morning to make sure the beach looked it’s best. The service was excellent and I would stay here again without any hesitation.
