    Overall the hotel is beautifull. Very clean and family friendly. One problem i had was i slipped and fell on the property, there are some places there that is very smooth and one can easily fall. luckily as i fell there was a staff that walked by at the time and saw it happened. He helped me up and advised me that he'll let the front desk know that I fell. After that no one from the hotel reaced out to me to make sure i was ok.

    The architecture is very modern, natural and beautiful and its a lovely setting on the beach and in the mangrove. It was an unusual time to be at the the resort as the coronavirus lockdowns were starting to have an impact. As a result, the hotel was very uncrowded but the hotel was running on limited staff and a number of services and amenities were not fully available. Nevertheless, the staff was very friendly and professional throughout the stay. I did have some minor maintenance issues with a clogged sink and an AC unit that was not functioning properly. It didn't seem to go to the set temperature and was alway either very cold or a little too hot and stuffy

  • 8.0.Very good

    This is a lovely hotel with helpful service but our stay was marred by an injury sustained with our traveling companion. She fell out of a hammock and broke her shoulder. Even though it was an accident, had the hammock not been hung over a concrete floor the injury certainly would have been less acute. Every room has hammocks and the thought that a smaller person might hit their head in such a fall is disturbing.

    Outstanding Attention to customer needs. The resort restaurants were excellent but you will not get a lot of food for the price you pay for liquor drinks, you should probably buy by the bottle not by the glass if you are drinking hard liquor. Beer and Wine portions were okay. Staff was excellent!

    Very attractive, stylish. Nice beach, public but not crowded. All lounges on shady side of pool are reserved to the cabana customers. Since there were no cabana customers all those lounges were unoccupied and everyone crowded on the sunny side of the pool.

    Great property with friendly accommodating staff. Non-cabana poolside seating is extremely. Wake up early (before 7am) if you want to claim something poolside. Otherwise outstanding overall.
