Minimal facilities with a few lounge beds to use. A small restaurant just to serve its purpose. Don't expect anything from this.

Tried to go this week During peak season. It is definitely closed. Run down,dirty. Looks like they just left town quick without notice. Too bad. I was excited to check it out and looks like it could be a great chill out place.

No notice, no facebook messages and no response to email. Looks like it could have been amazing, walked to find this place to be infinitely disappointed to find it completely closed up!

We tried going here, but there was nothing left. No sign that said if it is temporarly closed or not... Looked like it once would have been a nice place to hang out, but we only found an empy space with empty chairs.More

I'd give food and drinks a 2, the location and the service a 5, so I'll round up to 4. The food is some sort of Spanish-Thai fusion which didnt work for me. The portions are also pretty small and for that rather expensive. To...More
