Great chilled out retreat, incredible beach.
Loved our time here. We took the higher end room with air con closer to the beach. This meant we were away from the crowds by the pool (really not that crowded, could always find a couple of sun loungers and some shade) and had quick access to THE MOST AMAZING BEACH IN THE UNIVERSE. And I have travelled a lot and seen many beaches so this is a huge compliment. Unfortunately the yoga was possibly one of the worst classes I've ever been to and there was only one teacher on site at the time, and two independent yoga retreats staying at the resort as well. The classes are run two a day (7:30am and 4:30pm) and cost $15USD. Expensive for a 3rd world country and not a good quality teacher so was disappointed. But that's all part of it and I'm sure it was perfect for a different traveller to me.
The restaurant only has buffet options really, and weren't cheap ($10USD for lunch, $15USD for dinner, all plus fees plus taxes or something) but were good quality. Mostly vegetarian with a couple of good proteins being grilled on the side (eg chicken and fish) but fantastic choice for the vegos for sure. Breakfast was included and delicious. Pool area was very nice and green. Wifi only in the restaurant/bar/pool area and very slow but free.
