Check-in & check-out seemed to be at the same time so it was very chaotic when we arrived, we didn't get our room until 430pm but the manager was very lovely & gave us free drinks & food while we waited. Great size room with all the facilities we needed. Great choice at the buffet for breakfast. Overall we enjoyed our stay there.

Great location on a fantastic beach. I booked the cheapest room through Expedia but for some reason management gave us a free upgrade to a spectacular villa. Gotta love that!
