Good resort but room to grow
Location is good, the resort is quite facilitated. However, there is more room for improvement. There are still small areas of construction within the resort. Beach bar had just fully build and open, just in time during my visit. Overall it's a good relaxing place to getaway for a weekend.

Nice location, Good Staff below average food
We were three families travelling together with young children. Rooms were satisfactory not great, facilities were OK, food was awful with very less choices in buffet breakfast and dinner. We also tried A la Carte but that was also equally disappointing. Nice and clean beach. Only three facilities like Banana Boat, Jet Ski and Beach Buggy. You cannot drive Beach Buggy in the Beach but have to drive on a designated track only. We were hoping to get some Para-Gliding activity also, but that wasn't available. Over-all decent and cheap place to be if you are on tight budget.

Overall is ok except for the bathroom and smell in the room
Bathroom condition is bad, water drainage is very slow, toilet seat is spoilt (almost fell a few times when sitting on it)

Lack of maintenance
Lot of ants inside the room; wondering whether they do pest control; towel looks dirty; poor bathroom; some facilities out of service or faulty.
