Not crowded at all. Too bad there is invasion of seaweeds and sometimes they smell fishy. Though there are a few glass floors in our bungalow, we didn't see any fish, just seaweeds floating. Food in Palafitos Grill & bar is presented nicely but the quantity is small, yet delicious. Our butler David is very helpful in every way. Staffs are polite and welcoming. Hope the fan blades of the air conditioning in the room can be adjusted so it isn't blowing in our face all the time while we are in bed, quite cold and annoying. Overall, a memorable stay with easy access to the sea, just a few steps away
