Positive Reviews

Watching The Sunset

If you have a room with your own balcony you will enjoy sitting back and watching the sunset. The resort provides comfortable chairs to help you relax while taking in the view overlooking the ocean. The view from the pool area and the beach are magnificent.

Great If You Have A Boat And Fishing Rod

If you adore the outdoors and like fishing and boating, you are in luck at this resort. It's great for fishermen and those who love to take their boats out on the water whether for fishing or a nice boat ride.

Great Staff

The staff are extremely accommodating. They are not impatient if an issue comes up. They seem like a very experienced bunch and offer great suggestions for the area like the best attractions to visit.

Negative Reviews

Beach But No Swimming

The beach is actually a fake. You certainly can't swim in it, whatever it is. It's more for boats to take-off or dock. In fact, it's more like a swamp than a beach. So if you are expecting to relax on a sandy beach, you will be in for a shock.

Where Are The Amenities

It's not an actual resort where you can relax in the sauna and afterwards have a nice massage. These you can forget about. There is no fitness room either and no on-site restaurant.

Loudest Air-Conditioning In The World

The air-conditioning is ridiculously loud, so if it's really hot you are going to find sleeping a bit tricky. If you leave the window open, you're letting insects in. You might find a cockroach or two scurrying around as well.
