    There are not enough words to say how amazing this resort is. From the moment we got picked up from the airport, everyone was so friendly and you're treated as though you're the only guests that they have. You receive this fresh towel for your face and an amazing tea right when you arrive, everyone is incredibly friendly and the check in was so smooth, they walked us to our room which was breathtaking. Everything is kept clean and you can see people around the resort doing projects to keep the place looking nice (ex. painting outdoor walls). Each night we not only received amazing turn down service (that included a present!), but we were able to call the front and they could heat our individual pool! The food at both restaurants is amazing, especially at the fish mart (when you just pick your slab of seafood and they grill it - IT IS SO FRESH). We also did a couples massage when we were there which was incredible. Perfect pressure, the sweetest masseur's, AMAZING VIEWS and a really great spa. Between breathtaking views at every turn, great food/drinks and staff that seem to genuinely enjoy what they do and take pride in their work, we found it difficult to leave. We have decided to make this an annual trip!
