Awesome place. Highly recommended!

Decent stay
The hotel had great tasting food but it was all buffer style for breafast, lunch and dinner. Views from the pool / beach was beautiful and the resort is great for families that wish to do activities like visiting the big / small lagoon etc. One thing that we disliked was that the beach did not have chairs for us to lay by the beach and we had to lay by the pool only.

Perfect vacation
We really enjoyed the Minilock Hotel. The staff is lovely. Thidy the manager, Angel the charming, and the other staff very nice. The location of the hotel is perfect and there are many free attractions, kayaks and more. In addition to all this good, there is a very long tradition of years in which the hotel staff welcome guests with singing, dancing, and smiles. As the guests leave the hotel staff escorts them to the quay and waves goodbye until the boat is gone. it's very exciting.
