"Choose ocean side. The view is very nice."
"east side rooms are the best options, you don't need to use aircondition."
"pick ground floor and as close to beach as possible"
"The 5000 building complex is the most recently opened, ask for rooms facing the lagoon. We stayed at Eagle 5000 B, top floor, very nice."
"If your budget stretches that far , chose a suite with Jacuzzi !"
USD 136 - USD 305 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
