My family and i was invited by a relative and our experience was great. I'm planning of taking my family again to this place, unfortunately affordable rate is not available for families. Hoping you could give it since my family will be celebrating our wedding anniversary and birthday for my 2 kids by end of May.

Beautiful place, a lot of choices in terms of pools or even the beach. The area is also great for walks. The rooms are great. Love the complimentary stuff too.
