If you truly are looking for an amazing beach, this is one of the best we have seen. Truly white sand and turquoise water at its best and you will have to search hard to find a piece of seaweed or a rock, it is truly beautiful. We stayed 3/21-3/28 at the resort. We read a lot of reviews before...

I enjoyed staying at this resort. The staff was so friendly and very helpful. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable (low-end priced room). The ocean water was fantastic and beautiful white sand beaches that never became too hot for your feet. They spray (fog) the grounds at dawn and sunset to control the sand flies/gnats. I recommend that you...

“If you want a quiet room, chose one of the buildings at the ends of the resort, e.g., bldgs. 1, 2, 8, or 9.”
