6/10 Good

The hotel is conveniently located close to the airport so if you have a late night flight this might be a great option for you. However, even though hotel description lists airport shuttle they do not in fact provide one. We contacted them in advance and although it was confirmed by them, they did not send anyone to meet us. We have heard the same story from other people who were staying at the hotel. Breakfast is provided, rooms have air conditioning and they provide beach towels, but the beach is rocky and during low tide you could be walking for miles until the water even hits your knees so not much swimming can be done in the ocean. They do have a small pool where one can refresh.

2/10 Poor

Arrived in the evening to be told they were over booked. They sent us in the middle of the night to a nearby hotel with no hot water. As compensation we were only offered a free airport transfer, which is a value of like 2 bucks from that nearby. Trash fire of a hotel.

Beautiful property - relatively new from 2021 I think. Already some building paint and decking issues. Close to airport (15 min). Nice pool and very attentive staff. Great food. There’s nothing to do around the hotel other than relax.

Nice little hotel with great staff. However, the ocean beach is all coral, so you can only look at it, not go in; no sandy beach either. Also, horrible dirt road into it, darn near need a jeep to reach it. Last, its isolated, no nearby restaurants, shops etc. Have to have taxi or car to get to anything. Good spot if you want to be alone.
