Pool, beach, fishing pier, 2 bars/restaurants, boat charter all in walking distance. My room was a bit shabby, definitely needs new curtains but clean. The pool was a few doors down and was small but nice. the grounds were kept nice, beautiful views and sunsets!

The jacuzzi was nice and somewhat close to the room. The bedframe was nice however the furniture in the room was not functional and outdated. No place to sit and power up a lap top. No accessible electric outlets. The business center was disgusting and didn't work and no one knew how to get the computer up and running. The place is like a ghost town and secluded from the rest of civilization. Creepy place.

Check in was at 3pm. We arrived at 4:30 and our room was not ready yet! We were told it would be 1 more hour, but we could fill out all the paperwork now to save time. Then we left to eat. 5 minutes later, they called to say our room was ready! We finished eating and got back to the resort an hour later, where we had to wait another 15 minutes to just get our keys! Not very happy with the whole check in process!
