This place is amazing! It is part of a larger resort but separate unless you want to enjoy the larger one. We chose to stay in the bungalow area and loved the room service options and private restaurant and beach area. The views were great, we loved seeing the stingrays and fish swimming below, the access to the water was amazing and the food was really good. The butler service is outstanding! Can't wait to go back soon!
