The room was excellent with a nice balcony and large bathroom. Excellent beach.”
Being that it is a five-star resort, there are a few issues about the rates but a good number of guests also agree that the resort offers value for money. The resort’s location can also be a clincher: while most appreciate the exclusivity, getting to the resort can also be a challenge. And while recreation comes in the form of activities in and out of the water, guests would have to rely on the resort’s WiFi for in-room entertainment as there are no TV sets.
