3/5

    The room was very nice, however after paying $399 for 1 nights accommodation in a lagoon room ( to enjoy some peaceful alone time with my husband) I do not expect to have to deal with 10 people having a 30th birthday party in the room next door smoking drinking in the pool out the front of of our so called private pool entry... If I had wanted to party I would of paid for a cheaper room and swam in the infinity pool or cheaper still stayed home with our 6 kids... Very disappointed the property does not make sure this doesn't happen
