Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Unfortunately some of the facilities were not available and we had not been notified. We had counted on the snorkel equipment being available as advertised and it wasn't. With the great snorkel area right at the doorstep, this was extremely frustrating. Emailed our concerns on our first day to the property but got no response. They claimed it was due to Covid and not being able to be sure to clean it properly between uses but other properties didn't seem to have that problem. No excuse for not updating website. The snorkelling available here was the primary reason we chose it.

Our villa was well appointed and having absolute beach front was a bonus. The restaurant prices were a bit expensive but very well presented.
