The location was amazing, you have a big pool and a huge saltwater lagoon. The sea with all the different and colorful fishes are fantastic. You can´t stop snorkeling because you see all the time new fishes. The waiters by the hotel are so friendly and the food was good.

The building is very nice and the gardens/lawns look good. Staff was nice, flowers in the room and extra coffee in the room. The food was ok. A big buffet but we missed the French fries. The swimming pool is great with plenty of beds. Snorkling was fun.
