    Excellent.

    The facilities are superb, the staff is outstanding, the food is very good (mainly breakfast). The snorkeling at the front beach is amazing. Lots is different and colorful fishes. Turtles also come by.

    Internet speed. Although it is reached wherever you are, it definitely lacks speed.

    Great place but too many additional charges

    The property is breathtaking the moment you set foot in it. Sea turtles and beautiful fish swim right there in the lagoon with you. Staff is very attentive. Sunsets are incredible and the nice acoustic singer sets the perfect mood. They had a nice champagne in our room for our honeymoon.

    I chose this property after doing a LOT of research and the main reason was because there were a lot of activities for guests included with the stay (or so I thought). The brochure on their website is very misleading, it lists fitness activities without any pricing. My husband and I did Floating Yoga a couple of times and then I saw a charge of $20 per person per class on the final bill. I couldn't dispute it because apparently it was stated on the sign in sheet, but at 6:45am I really wasn't reading the fine print on what I was putting my name and room number on. The resort fee of $25 per day only includes parking and very slow wifi. Everything else is charged, even shaded chairs at the beach. Too many additional charges, in my opinion.

    Hotel was okay but you can't compare to a four seasons.

    Need more people at the front desk. There are a lot of stray cats on the premises.

    Relaxing

    Room is beautiful and the restaurants were excellent, maybe the large pool was excellent we landscaped and pool isn't to be at. Many activities to enjoy at the beach. The outdoor spa treatments are amazing! With the most friendly and helpful staff.

    Leaving, The only casual dining was at lunch.

    The housekeeping service, facilities, the restaurants, the pool area services, the sunset ritual

    the beach is terrible, the inconsistency in serving the same breakfast - the waffle was presented with and without additions, like whipped cream, spiced sugar, coconut sauce. Unacceptable.
