    Amazing place to stay!!!
    Great place to stay. The staff are very friendly and cater to any of your needs. They have great live music every night. The private beach is wonderful which is great for swimming, snorkeling and lounging. The rooftop pool offers great views of the ocean. Breakfast every morning starts at 7am and is a great spread. Their dinner buffet has a great spread too! They offer great snorkeling options and also options to visit other resorts for a day. Their pick up and drop off from/to airport is on time and affordable. All in all, an extremely well run hotel which allows you to fully unwind and enjoy the island. Also, it is situated well to explore the rest of the island easily.

    Sad face IconDisliked: Cleanliness, amenities
    The people are amazing and kind, we like everything but the room as it’s small, no windows, not super clean, there was random small hairs on the sheets and a stain, the bathroom had used lotions and body wash in it. I also have a bad leg(medical issue) which tends to swell so I asked for pillows and ice , they didn’t seem to have 4 extra pillows and couldn’t give me a bucket of ice so I attempted with a glass and just had to stay off of my legs the remainder of the day/night because I was unable to fix it
