Negative Reviews

Beach area full of boats and seaweed

If you're looking for a holiday where you can swim at the beach, this may not be the right resort for you. While this is an ocean front property, guests reported that boats are often anchored close to the shore which makes swimming at the beach difficult. At times seaweed on the beach is also an issue with guests complaining about the smell of seaweed that has accumulated along the shore.

Overpriced on-site restaurants

Guests warned that the drinks and meals served at the on-site restaurants are expensive and the quality is not always on par with the prices charged.

Disappointing views

Despite being an oceanfront property, not all rooms offer a memorable view. Guests were disappointed to find that some rooms offered only a partial view of the ocean while others overlooked other properties.
