We love the location. We like the resturant, the private beach. The water pressure in shower is poor at best. The wifi is spotty.

The hotel was beautiful. The room is on the water & we spent most of the time with the door open, which leads to humidity in the room. Thankfully the AC went down low enough at night to take care of the humidity! We would definitely stay here again!

I loved that it was right on the beach. The location was great. The shell/fish cleaning hut was a nice perk. Wish they included breakfast, but all in all, a nice place to visit!
