This place is a must to stop by and have a drink at the bar, take a dip in the beautiful pool or just sit in the free lounge chairs. Great service, we spent 5 hours there and loved it.

Amazing, hidden little treasure on the island. It is very relaxing and serene. The beach and pool are great. The only admission is food and drink. The staff are very friendly.
