4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Nice hotel. Well located. Good food. Poor service (no service in pool area & very slow restaurant service). It was raining and the roof was leaking a considerably amount of water, tables needed to be moved to avoid it. We took a free kayak ride and the lagoon boat trip was worth it (a little bit more expensive than outside, but you save time looking for one). Excellent massage service! in a nice cabanna with window floors.

Beautiful place on the lagoon
Had a problem with an A/C but they immediately helped and moved me to a different and better room. Definitely get one of the superior rooms on the lagoon.

Beautiful hotel. Facilities are breathtaking. This is a place to unplug and have a social media detox as there is no WiFi (except Reception and Restaurant but very poor) All views are beautiful, the garden, the lagoon. Need to improve: Have a better store/shop on site. If you forget any toiletries or need a band aid or a antiacid you need to go to town which’s is 15 min away. Also, reception staff told me twice they would send me a catalog via WhatsApp about their tours and their spa services and they never sent it to me. They don’t have catalogs in the rooms. So, you better look for your own trips and things to do. The restaurant is fabulous! Food, views and friendly staff.
