    Spectacular place. We will definitely go again. We had a couple of issues with our room but nothing earth shattering. Food and drinks a bit pricey. Staff very eager to please and professional. Overall great place and facilities. Terrific views.

    Our stay

    Resort with amazing views and excellent staff. The only downside was the noise of the boats probably fishing every morning nearby and the bugs that maybe are to expected if you sleep sorrounded by nature.

    Amazing place, but ...

    The place is great ! Amazing view with a private pool. What else ? Well, a lot of small issues that put together doesn’t give the 5 star experience you pay for: - no hot water, we had to ask 3 times before it got fixed late on the 2nd day of our stay - phone not working the whole stay (and it is needed to order the shuttle since the resort is pretty big) - water dripping in the living room when raining - shower not running properly (probably due to no maintenance and limestone buildup) - scale not working (not necessary indeed, but if you have one might as well be functioning) - coffee and tea provided, but no kettle to boil water (we had to ask) - body lotion pump not working (detail, but yet shouldn’t happen in a 5 star hotel) - food was not bad, but far from great and what you may expect All that put together, didn’t give us the expected experience even though the overall place is amazing.

    Beautiful location, but understaffed. Covid?

    The location is pretty amazing with a view of the ocean. The rooms are all huge too! unfortunately, the pool villa we got had questionable water. The pool water was yellow. Only one that I could see (I checked the other pools). We were there for a short stay and didn't want to risk swimming in it. Only got moved to a different room for our last night. Also, it seems like they're pretty understaffed, and most likely due to Covid, so service for anything was a bit slow.

    I was amazed by how hotel has such a unique interior and breathtaking view. Staffs were nice and helpful. Breakfast was average, nothing special but couldn't compare with other 5 star hotels I used to stay. Drinks and cocktails did not worth paying at that price. I don't mind paying at this price but expect to see more variety and dedication to the food and drinks

    Nice Stay, food was ok.

    The place was really nice, but since they recently opened, they seemed to be a little out of practice with cooking. The stay overall was great, but the food wasn't great (don't do the buffet for at least a few weeks).

  • 10,0.Exceptional

    Stayed here for two weeks during the virus crisis and it was a perfect place to be...very safe and secluded. I enjoyed the food, the staff was wonderful and my room was perfect. I am shocked that some people complained about the service, never once did I have an issue. Yes, the hill is an issue, but the transportation by truck is easy and I never had to wait more than a few minutes for one to arrive. I would highly recommend this place. I would also recommend that you rent a scooter in town and take a ride around the island...the other beaches were wonderful and the people very friendly. Go see Tom down on the beach and rent the scooter there.
