Absolutely incredible! Fantastic beyond believe . It was so good I booked an additional 3 nights . I could not fault a single aspect of the resort . I was a lone traveler , and every single member of staff including the managers and manager of the resort made me feel like a member of the family . They were all so warm friendly and welcoming, and I will genuinely miss chatting to them . The location is superb and the beach and ocean views incredible. The food was fantastic and I would like to extend a massive thank you to every single member of staff! Nothing was too much trouble for this wonder people . Matthew
