The kids would love it here. Plenty of activities for the family. What I like best about this resort is, it's really safe for the kids to swim at. All the lagoons around is only 5ft deep max, except of course for the diving area. where you can jump from a cliff and land on 12 ft of water. They...

My family and i was invited by a relative and our experience was great. I'm planning of taking my family again to this place, unfortunately affordable rate is not available for families. Hoping you could give it since my family will be celebrating our wedding anniversary and birthday for my 2 kids by end of May.

Beautiful place, a lot of choices in terms of pools or even the beach. The area is also great for walks. The rooms are great. Love the complimentary stuff too. Its a bit expensive but every bit is worth the price. But what amazes me and my family is the great customer service of the staff. No trace of discrimination...

Very accommodating and polite staff. I don't feel intimidated at all for they treat their customers equally (no special treatment for foreigners vs locals) and that is what I like the most about this place. The staff simply has a way of making your day special by giving their smile and greeting as you pass them by. The place is...
