Has much potential.
Hotel resort under construction. Staff needs training in customer service and basic food service issues. Rooms are great, but after that, you are on your own.

Very Good8.0
Nice place, in my case it was perfect for a family vacation, we did not have any need to go outside of the place, we liked that the room has everything needed to cook and eat inside the village, so if you want to cook no need to pay for restaurant food, breakfast was included and beach is beautiful, ocean was quiet and easy
