4/10 Fair

Restaurant had a decent menu but they don’t have alcohol on the premises,I’ve eaten at a lot of restaurants and this is a first. Got an ocean view room for an extra charge and the windows hadn’t been cleaned in months and about impossible to see thru, nothing to do or other restaurants within walking distance

4/10 Fair

This is one of three properties with the same name. Was not a proper “beach front” property as there was no sand, instead jagged dirty coral the was not safe or suitable for walking. Also off main busy road so nowhere to walk or explore around the hotel
Patrick, 3-night romance trip
Verified Expedia guest review

2/10 Poor

I didn’t like the way the outside of the hotel looked when I arrived, and the room that I was supposed to stay in was mediocre. There was also a cockroach in the bathroom. I paid to stay at the hotel for 10 days, but I left after spending the night there!

It is strongly recommended to put a big sign at swim pool of the depth. It goes very fast deep which can be quite dangerous.
