We loved the architecture and interior design of the resort is beautiful. Staff is friendly and very helpful. They also had arranged an Easter egg hunt for the kids with face painting. We had 8 kids in our group who enjoyed very much.

The hotel is smaller but the staff is very nice. The room is good as is the location. Their pool was the only warm pool for the whole 6 week vacation visiting 6 pools. It's an infinity pool overlooking the ocean. Really nice! The beach is real nice but not swimmable. It's too shallow for a long distance. It's good...
