As a bonus, they come in small portions so you have the chance to sample many items.

If you need suggestions on where to go or how to get there, don't hesitate to ask, as the staff is very knowledgeable about the area.

Negative Reviews

No Reservations

The restaurants onsite are quite popular and can get full quickly, so expect to wait for a table. Unfortunately, the restaurants do not accept reservations but guests say the wait is never too long.

Washed Away

Many guests were disappointed at the resort's beachfront, as much of it has eroded so the beachfront is now significantly smaller.

Loud Entertainment

The pool and beach areas often feature loud music and entertainment, which some guests found annoying, as they were looking for a quiet beach getaway.
