Beautiful hotel
Love the location and overall the hotel is well maintained. I just didn't like so much light in the room (no blackout) and food was average. Everything else is excellent, especially the staff. Very clean and super safe!

4/10 Fair

The design and furniture is very elegant and the all-white fabrics contrast beautifully with the setting. But the poor management ruins the experience. The food is horrible. There is limited to no internet. The managers are nowhere to be found. There is no first emergency kit or anyone who knows first aid. No training in hospitality. There is no external lighting. It’s a disaster waiting to happen. What a shame!!!

This space is amazing! We loved it. The staff is fantastic and our experience was truly exceptional. The bikes need to be tuned up and adjusted to people's heights before allowing guests to take off with them.

Clean hotel with all the services you could want at the beach. There is a private area plus the pools are there if you want a night swim or to take a break from the ocean. The breakfast was really great and all the staff were helpful. I would definitely stay there again and recommend it.
