Overall the hotel is in a beautiful location — nice and secluded with a great pool and beach area. If all you want to do is relax by the pool this is a great place for that!
The Villas— we stayed in an ocean view villa and the rooms were spacious, had a really nice patio to sit on. However—the rooms feel a bit outdated. Our air conditioning broke twice, once in the middle of the night and we had to wait an hour for it to be fixed. the AC is only in the main room so the bathroom are gets very warm.
The gym— this is an important feature of a hotel for me! Overall it was pretty good they had some well maintained spin bikes, an elliptical and a treadmill. I think it would be better if they had two treadmills and two ellipticals . My husband and I both wanted to run inside and couldn’t at the same time.
The food/drinks—overall I enjoyed breakfast there but didn’t really eat much else there. All the drinks and food were overpriced and there are very few other options without taking a taxi to a different location.
Cooking class—If you actually want to learn how to cook the food I wouldn’t take the class. You feel rushed while making the dishes and don’t really learn much about what you are doing. Most of the prep work is done for you which can take some of the fun out of cooking.
Service—overall everyone at the hotel was incredibly friendly and helpful (especially at the front desk). However it felt like the hotel was understaffed—took nearly an hour to get food and drinks by the pool and they got the order wrong.
When you book this hotel just keep in mind you will be taking taxis everywhere (or you need to rent a car or bike) —there is not much near the hotel. The hotel is pretty dead in the evenings but the nearby fisherman’s village is a great place to go with a ton to eat and drink
