    Service and Staff
    Property condition



    Quoted about $150 on expedia but management wouldn't accept the price and was charged $275. Breakfast was terrible, mainly toast and jam. No clean linen or towels. Wifi hardly worked and in the mornings had to wait to wake up the "chef" to have breakfast. So don't book early morning tours.

    Pros: Avocdo salad -in stock only once

    Cons: everything

    Location: surfing, yoga and the beach
