Transport to the hotel was aggravating. I confirmed with the hotel and received confirmation of transit and who to meet. A few days before arrival they reached out stating I need to confirm arrival as well which I did again. They actually swabbed the greeting person without informing me which when traveling alone I don’t appreciate. I was told to wait in the waiting area and he would get me for the transfer, which he never did. When I approached the greeter with the hotel sign (different staff member) to see when the boat would arrive I was taken to a lead who then accused me of missing the boat and wanted to know why I did not ask him earlier. Beyond the arrival issues the staff are really nice and helpful. They hotel was clean, but my room seemed like it could use some maintenance. Had noise issues from midnight to 4am which the night crew couldn’t seem to handle. It was frustrating when calling them trying to explain and to see what they could/couldn’t do. I gave up on after 2 calls.

It's recommended generally if you would like to stay out most of the time so it's a clean place to sleep and safe, the staff friendly people and the food is typically good.

I booked the hotel for our honeymoon. There were good things and bad things about the place. The good: Some staff are friendly and helpful. The housekeeping gentleman was good. Room itself is pretty good. Decent amenities. The activities team are great. All professional and pleasant. The bad: 1. Have to start with the concierge guy called Adriano. Extremely pushy & inconsiderate. He was almost wanting to snatch my credit card and swipe before answering any of our questions. He also got us to pay for a final day kayaking when it was fairly evident that the president would be visiting that day and that all those activities would be cancelled. We were so looking forward to kayaking as it was the penultimate day of our honeymoon and it could've been a memorable thing we did together. Another concierge lady (don't know her name) was extremely rude & even told us to approach the watersports just the previous day.I have no idea how she works in the hospitality industry. If they were honest & upfront we could've atleast planned it differently. incredibly disappointing how he was quick to take our money but then kept making excuses of being busy when we spoke about the refund. 2. Flies: Eating breakfast & lunch is a challenge due to army of flies. The fly fan is useless. Need for indoor dining options 3. Water. you get 2 bottles and then pay 1usd fro a small bottle. Tip: Go to the store nearby(landpro) & get a 5 lt bottle for 1 usd.
