Nice quiet hotel without animation programs. Excellent food. All inclusive formula bit strange: You can not get free drinks at main bar in hotel, but drinks at pooldesk and during meals are free. Superb house reef with turtles, many fishes, nice corals etc.

Stayed in this hotel a couple of times after diving safaris. The hotel is in very good condition considering the rest of options with very helpful staff and good level of service. It is very conveniently situated just in front of the Marina.
