Great place to relax but that is it..nothing to do on site. You have to leave if you want any type of entertainment. Food was exceptional...best we've ever had but unfortunately would never return here based on the value.More

Loved how private the hotel is. Excellent service throughout, gorgeous swim up bar, fantastic drinks, spa on-site. The rooms were huge and well-furnished. Cannot recommend this place enough, we'll definitely be going back.
