They property had beautiful views and access to beach at low tide. Was a remote location with a rough road to access it. They should specify that it is a alcohol free resort. Staff was friendly and helpful. Enjoyed the quiet and views.

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Цена слишком завышена, хотя место приятное.
Сама территория отеля ухожена, приятная, особенно зона у бассейна. Номер маленький, но все необходимое есть. Ресторан неплохой. Виды из ресторана и от бассейна завораживающие. Для пары дней после перелета - хорош для адаптации. Но вот с пляжем - беда. В океан заходить неприятно и опасно (дно каменистое).
