Fodor's Review

Furnishings are an adroit mix of rustic and modern in this midsize, 11-story resort. Rooms are simple but bright, done in mostly white with a few earth-tone accents. Junior suites have views from both the living room and the bedroom. There aren't any private balconies, but windows that reach nearly from the floor to the ceiling open to the sea breezes. A children's pool with a slide lures kids away from the palm-shaded main pool, which has a swim-up bar.

Champagne service for Beer Budget

What can I say this is an excellent hotel. The only minor down side is some beds can be a little hard. We didn't notice drink enough and you sleep great. Nice and clean good food, nice pools great service
