    Regret not staying here for my whole holiday

    Excellent vibrant location. Clean and spacious rooms and well maintained. Great variety of food for breakfast. Wouldn't have left for my remaining 3 days if I knew about the swimming pool inside the hotel.

    Great spot great price

    I really loved this hotel. I recommend getting an ocean view room. Its totally worth it. The rooms were really nice and clean and looked fairly new. They seemed bigger in the pictures though so pay attention to square footage and pick your room properly. The customer service was awesome, especially Brij. He literally never stops smiling! He was so fun to be around! The rest of the staff was really friendly as well. And, yes, the food was really delicious. I would definitely stay again.

    Amazing place to stay!!!

    Great place to stay. The staff are very friendly and cater to any of your needs. They have great live music every night. The private beach is wonderful which is great for swimming, snorkeling and lounging. The rooftop pool offers great views of the ocean. Breakfast every morning starts at 7am and is a great spread. Their dinner buffet has a great spread too! They offer great snorkeling options and also options to visit other resorts for a day. Their pick up and drop off from/to airport is on time and affordable. All in all, an extremely well run hotel which allows you to fully unwind and enjoy the island. Also, it is situated well to explore the rest of the island easily.

    The people are amazing and kind, we like everything but the room as it’s small, no windows, not super clean, there was random small hairs on the sheets and a stain, the bathroom had used lotions and body wash in it. I also have a bad leg(medical issue) which tends to swell so I asked for pillows and ice , they didn’t seem to have 4 extra pillows and couldn’t give me a bucket of ice so I attempted with a glass and just had to stay off of my legs the remainder of the day/night because I was unable to fix it
