6/10 Good

Nice island
The place was great, the room was clean and tidy, and the restaurants were great, but the glass of the ground rooms was not reflective, during the day, and did not give privacy to the room, and most of the equipment for water activities did not work, and there was also a delay, the transportation between the rooms and the reception, where the driver arrives after half an hour or more
