This place was amazing. We was there on January 2017. Very clean resort with kind and friendly people. We had all-inclusive program. There were so many drinks (in the afternoon were snacks too) and every day was different cuisine (African, European, Asian, etc.). Pool was very clean too. We visited Stone town, Prison Island, Jozani park, Butterfly farm and Spice...

This resort is quiet, very clean, with a friendly staff. And very affordable as well. When I arrived three days prior to my reserved dates, they were able to fit Mae in for two days and found a hotel nearby for the third night. They even provided transportation both to the hotel and back to the resort the next day....
