8/10 Very good

We found the staff so friendly and accommodating. Our first impression of the site was unimpressive. We found the gravel area from the road and up to the reception counter uneven and there were many weeds growing around the area. The reception counter was very basic and in the open. It was not easy to use in the heat or in the rain. There were many places with steps up and down around the site that were not well lit at night. We checked in at 1AM and we were sent to our room without any instructions of how to get there and we couldn't find any numbers. A printed map would have been useful. The pool was beautifully clean. There was only one bedside table in our room. The shower had great water pressure and hot water.

It's in a great location & the view from our ocean front room was amazing. The room did need quite a bit of maintenance and they are on the small side.
