Positive Reviews

Nice Excursions

Many guests enjoyed the excursions available to guests if they wished. They enjoyed going into the ocean for snorkeling and go to forest excursions as well. It was an opportunity to see the island much better and was a highlight for some.

Relaxing Place

The resort is mentioned as being a great place to relax in, as there were plenty of activities available for guests to enjoy. There was an outdoor pool, a bar, a restaurant and it is located in front of the beach. The views are also worth the stay.

Friendly Staff

The staff members were friendly people who took care of their guests during their stay. They did not mind going the extra effort to please guests. The service was also nice in the restaurant as they did not mind to cook up something different from the menu.

Negative Reviews

Dirty and Broken

Some guests felt the bungalows were too shabby looking and dirty for them to be comfortable. They saw some utilities completely rusted. The towels were dirty and the rooms were full of mosquitoes. Some nets had holes which did not help with the insects.

No Beach

The ocean and the advertised beach was in reality a water that could not be swam in. Some guests were disappointed that there was no real beach to enjoy during their stay.


Some guests did not accept or enjoy the fact the hotel was overbooked, yet they still accepted bookings in the resort, knowing full well there was no room. They were moved to another hotel instead.
