Very Good8.0
Great Getaway
Great beach and lots of restaurant and shopping options. Food in the restaurants on site was excellent and reasonably priced. My room was on the small side but comfortable. Great pool area, although not many shade options to hide from very strong mid-day sun! It is about .5 hours drive from the airport

Single Female-Felt Safe
As a single female traveler I felt very safe at this hotel. The room had a nice balcony with ocean view and decent cushioned furniture. The pool area had a good atmosphere with nice loungers and attentive bar/food service. Drink and food prices at the pool were less expensive than I expected from a resort. Everyone was very friendly. I also got a massage and they were very accommodating and the spa looked clean. No one went swimming in the ocean in front of the hotel. They no longer have a dive center on site, but have an agreement with one at the hotel next door. You can walk along the beach and go to other hotel restaurants, and there are 2 small mini-marts along the beach to stock up on water, candy, chips, simple toiletries, etc. I liked that the hotel wasn't huge but felt personal and quaint while still being a resort with a lot of amenities. The cocktail happy hour for sunset was superb. I could also view the sunset from my room. Wifi worked everywhere, from my room, the pool, breakfast restaurant, to the roof top. I'd definitely stay there again.
