8/10 Very Good

Check-in was fast and simple. Anthony was helpful and communicated with me prior to arrival to arrange the dinner during our stay. The ocean front bungalows are spacious and comfortable. The beach is beautiful. The Pool area is very nice and has beautiful ocean views. Dinner at the lodge was tasty. The drinks prepared at the bar we’re good. Service by the pool was okay. The beach chairs were dirty and could use a good wash. Also, beach towels are not provided so bring your own. The bed in the bungalow was too firm for my taste and not comfortable. Location is very quiet and peaceful. It’s a great place to just relax as there’s not much to do.

6/10 Good

Nice concept but not well executed. It appears to be a premium/luxury hotel, but staff lacks preparation, training and professionalism. There were no towels at checkin. At dinner, when asked the waiters they couldn’t explain how the plates were prepared. We saw a huge rat five times near the dinner area. We were offered the spa, and when asked availability they told us the masseuse was in her day off. Rather, they offered us to use the sauna and jacuzzi for a ridiculous amount of money. There are no phones in the room. Instead you have to call from your own phone or text them. They don’t answer calls and responded our texts five hours later. Never called back. The security guy was nice and the private boat tour was also really nice but the captain explicitly asked for tips at the end. For the price point, we expected more exclusive treatment, professionalism and higher quality food given the amount charged. The hotel has big room for improvement.
