Dive into the waves at these beach properties
Perfect weekend getaway to relax and unwind. Rooms are in excellent condition. LOVED the oversized jacuzzi on the balcony. Staff are always in good spirits. I recommend the early morning breakfast in the reserve, definitely worth the 5am wake up call.
Porter not efficient upon arrival
Is a nice place for family gathering. Is warm in the afternoon. Need to add additional aircond
The only issue during our stay was the A/C; it was not so good during the night. I did not report it because we were busy all day and never remembered to do it. Beside of that, great hotel.
Amazing views and beautiful bay and snorkling.
Nice staying, staff is really kind and helpful always. They have servals actitites to provide to the guests (free or charges) in the island. Good place for relaxing holiday.
