Endless supply of activities

A majority of guests find there isn't a shortage of things to do onsite, from golfing and playing tennis to snorkelling and kayaking.  Others appreciate that more leisurely activities are available, including relaxing at the spa, as well as enjoying a gourmet meal and cocktails at one of the resorts numerous restaurants.

Negative Reviews

No nightlife

Several guests say that during daytime hours, there are plenty of things to do, but that during evening hours, outside of grabbing a cocktail at one of the onsite bars, nightlife is non-existent.

Seaweed on the beach

Some guests note that at certain times of the year, an unusual amount of seaweed washes onto the beach, which is often times accompanied by a less than pleasant smell.  Most are quick to point out that staff members are diligent in their efforts to keep the beach seaweed-free.

Breakfast lacks variety

While many guests appreciate that a complimentary breakfast is served daily, most are quick to point out that the same thing is offered every morning and wish there was more variety in options available.
