10.0 Excellent
We really enjoyed swimming in the lagoon and the bay beyond it daily. We saw many fish, turtles. I Even on days that the water was rough, the lagoon was very calm. We had a deluxe ocean view, on the 4th floor, and had a beautiful view of the ocean. The room was very nice, and the bathroom had a bath/shower and separate shower only, and separate enclosed toilet, so very useful/private. Room was well furnished, modern, clean feeling. The staff went out of their way to greet and show hospitality. They offered many times to tell us if there was any way to make our stay better. This came from the front desk, and housekeeping. Improvement could be better internet.
10.0 Excellent
Pros:Nice resort and comfortable rooms and amenities
Cons:Check in for covid restrictions didn’t make a lot of sense and wasn’t very smooth, limited capacity at restaurants
10.0 Excellent
Pros: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.
Cons:Internet speed. Although it is reached wherever you are, it definitely lacks speed.
9.4 Excellent
Pros: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.
Cons: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.
6.0 Okay
Pros:Hotel was okay but you can't compare to a four seasons.
Cons:Need more people at the front desk. There are a lot of stray cats on the premises.
