Pros: I love the atmosphere and decor of the place. The staff was amazingly attentive and helpful. The rooms were spacious, modern, clean and comfortable. The dining was great. Beach and pool area were also beautifully constructed wells of relaxation.
Cons: Just didn't like the fact that it was so far away from everything. At least an hour drive to any notable tourist attraction.
1- The complementary transportation from the airport to the hotel was not provided. I had to pay the equivalent of $80 to rent a taxi to go to the hotel. 2- When I was checking in, I found out that the rate they offering over the phone was 30% less than what I paid. 3- Shuttle bus to the local market on Monday was cancelled without any reason or announcement.
Pros: The beach
Cons: Staff Location
