8/10 Very good

Beautiful, sustainable hotel, amazing food and drinks, friendly staff. Bathroom was very small, only 1 sink and barely room for a toilet bag. Also very little cabinet space and no table/desk to put a laptop and work remotely. Also not a friend of bare concrete floors

4/10 Fair

We paid for a junior studio with beach which was as described. What was not identified was the music that played till 0500 everyday and that they did not clean the balcony covered poo excreta. No fly screens so mosquitos in room if not wanting to use air conditioning. On requesting a change of room, told music was just the weekend. Untrue. No daybeds around the pool and as the ocean was littered with seaweed this meant walking from beach through dinners to access pool. Staff very pleasant.
