    The place was ok. It more of a 3 star property than 5*. Staff do there best to accomadate and the chef. I hated the beach. It not smooth at all. It was rubbish. It had to much shells. Yes it was white. Pic from far make it look amazing. But close up not that great. All insclusve drink are all water down juice. Not the real thing. Pools are nice and bar area good.
