Resort is secluded. Room was comfy. The pool never got overwhelmingly crowded. Nightlife was very chill. Managers' reception with free Mai Tais was a lovely touch. Gorgeous views- just like the pictures. Some maintenance is needed- the water pressure is low, the AC isn't super-cold, some of the furnishings are showing wear and tear. Wish… Read more

Gorgeous views- just like the pictures. Some maintenance is needed- the water pressure is low, the AC isn't super-cold, some of the furnishings are showing wear and tear. Wish there was a morning dining option other than the finer-dining restaurant. Overall, we were happy with our stay. Can't beat the views! Read less

We stayed here for our honeymoon. The customer service was excellent, the grounds are beautiful. I do have to say our room was stinky and outdated. I see the resort having so much potential. I wish I would have stayed in an upgraded room I feel that the standard rooms need to be renovated. Our room had a very musty stinky smell and the walls had rust and the wallpaper was hanging off of the wall. The furniture was filthy. The bed was clean and so was the bathroom and that was what was most important to us. Luckily we spent most of our time at beach and the poolside bar so we didn’t use the furniture in our room. The staff and overall resort was wonderful. I highly recommend staying here if you upgrade, but a standard room at a resort should not be in such condition. But please do not let that scare you away, just stay in an upgraded room or know what to expect of the basic. This resort is gorgeous, right on the beach, and the staff is absolutely wonderful. We will be back despite the room being a bit disappointing. Overall this was a fun place to stay. Read less

Do I stay at the resort or check out the sites. It's a tough choice because the brach is right out your door.. Accommodations is first rate. Great location and comfortable rooms. My only complaint is that the condo could have some of the basic household items in the room. It seems seems odd to go out and buy large quantities of items just to… Read more
