10/10 Exceptional

It is a piece of paradise. The property is beautiful and clean. The rooms are simple but nice and comfortable. The bathroom is different and I like the open concept of the shower. Food is good, the menu is basic. It can be improved. The staff is extremely friendly and the service is excellent. They are always willing to help you. There are different activities to do and the hotel is great assisting you to coordinate. It was a great experience. I totally recommend it.

2/10 Poor

Although I informed them about my late arrival via email and they confirmed that they will hold my reservation, upon arrival I was informed that my room was given to someone else. Temporary bed I was offered was full of insects. No toilette paper in the bathroom (was I supposed to bring my own?). Good luck arriving after midnight...they close the gate to the resort and you have to walk one mile from the street to the resort. No one picks up the phone when you call them on the 2 numbers they posted at the gate. Would not recommend.
