Not the best beach
See water is muddy. In addition, they carrying some works on the beach. Dishes in ala carte restaurants are inconsistent. I guess, cooks make dishes as they like. If you go twice to French Restaurant you will notice it. Rooms are very clean. Customer services are very good. Entertainment shows could be better. Very friendly coatis will take food from your hand.
I’ve been in this amazing resort with my family and to be honest I really loved it. Cleaning of all resort and room was the positive points. Very nice food. Amazing place , with amazing staff. All really nice and polite. But for sure I had one of the members of the staff that for me was very special, Ivan!! 😊 He made our evenings so great and memorable .
