The food, staff and wild life was wonderful. Did not like not being able to walk around. Steep inclines and nothing close by.

Pretty place.

Pros: The restaurant has a nice view. The pool area are impressive. The staff are so helpful in guiding us to tour and the surround area.

Elegant 5 star resort off the beaten path.

Pros: The rooms and the daytime use of the pool
Cons: Open the pool after 7pm and heat the hot tub
Location: Nice restaurants and beaches in the immediate area.
We were pleased at the room it was lovely and had so much to offer. The staff was very nice and even sent a chilled bottle of wine, cheese and fruit to our room. The breakfast was lovely with linen table clothes. The only negative thing for us was the hot tub and pool closed at 7pm for no reason we could understand. The hot tub was not heated either. However the pool in the daytime was first class and we felt like a king and queen there.
