Beautiful, fancy resort; excellent food; fun with kids

Member Rating 5 out of 5 by a traveler from on February 3, 2011

Our family, including an 11 year old and 5 year old, visited in November for a few nights. The property is beautiful, with lots of activities. Our kids enjoyed snorkeling in the lagoon pool, full of tropical fish and other sea life. There were also kayaks and sailboats for the ocean. Our 11 year old especially liked fishing. The rods are free, but we had to buy bait (much cheaper at the market across the street). The restaurant and outside cafe were excellent; the food was tasty, and reasonably priced. Rooms were large and recently renovated, with a tremendous bathroom (almost the same length of the large bedroom) with glass shower, multiple jets, and a balcony tub (no jets). On our recommendation, our parents stayed there afterward. The rooms were pricey, but well worth it.
