Loved its simplicity- not commercial, quiet, stunning location and wonderful, friendly staff. Delicious food as well.
Nothing except maybe the bed, 2 doubles pushed together with egg crate. It could have been more comfortable.

Beautiful place to relax and...”

The two large and deep pools in proportion to the number of overall resort size, and beautiful garden surroundings make it an excellent place to relax and unwind.
Some improvements to the blinds could make the rooms more sound proof to keep out noises of roosters and guests that don&#39;t know how to keep their voices down outside when it&#39;s dark.

We loved the beachfront. We could snorkel off the beach at the resort and the snorkelling was quite good when the tide was in. The sunsets were magnificent.
The traffic noise especially at night as I am a light sleeper. Not a lot of restaurants close by. There is a bus stop right outside but easier if you have your own car.
