The main point about this hotel is the stunning beach in front of it. So beautiful and relaxing! The hotel itself is lovely with an open interior with lovely well air conditioned rooms and nice green areas to sit in the sun. The food was tasty however I did suffer a mild tummy trouble after eating here so be careful....
