I don’t even want to give a high review for the AVRA because I’m afraid too many people will find out how great it is and we won’t be able to get back in! Rooms were great, ours had a private plunge pool. The main pools are amazing with swim up bars and lots of places to lie in the water. Food was great with lots of options. Walk right onto the beach where there is their own little beach bar with pool. Great for families and couples looking to relax. Village is a little sleepy so no real nightlife after dinner.
