With turquoise waters greeting you from every angle, and a mere stroll away from lounging in surreal comfort, the all-inclsive resort promises an idyllic escape. However, while the setting is stunning, the upkeep of the resort leaves something to be desired. Plumbing issues marred our stay, necessitating a room change due to a malfunctioning toilet and lack of hot water. Unfortunately, this seemed to be a common issue among other guests.
