We did not get the rooms we requested, ocean view, four room together, even though we had booked 3 months in advance. Was assigned a small room with very poor lighting over the vanity which made it difficult putting on makeup and the countertop area was very small. Not a lot of room for personal items. However, the staff could...

The pictures on the Internet makes the resort look a lot better than it really is. The resort is small and the beach area is very small with piles of seaweed.

I was very disappointed that the ocean water right in front of the hotel wasn't aquamarine blue.. it was clear, but washed out looking & then went directly into dark blue with tons of seaweed on the ocean bottom. We moved rooms twice while we were there and the water...

This was the only downside and the rest...

Well here goes... Me and a mate of mine stayed here from the 20th - 27th Sep. Perfect weather... Beach is very small but cosy and clean. The beach does have a lot of seaweed but there are a family constantly sweeping it up. The hotel is a very nice and clean hotel but its also very small and boring....

My friends and I traveled to this hotel earlier this month on a girls only trip! First of all, the staff along with the visitors were not fond of Americans at all! Rude comments throughout our 5 day stay, along with being ignored at the bar to even get water! The one decent staff member was their security guard which...
