From Pedasi's airport it is a bit of an adventure to get there but once you reach destination, it's worth it.

Our long awaited (see our hotel review) dinner at the hotel (we were guests there) was excellent. My husband had a wonderful pasta and I had a perfect steak. The wait staff was very attentive, the bread accompanying the meal was outstanding (we ate it all), and our table with the view over the ocean listening to the surf was... More

We have eaten here before and enjoyed our meal and surroundings. This time we asked our hotel to make reservations for 6pm but the resturant thought it was for 7. We ordered aps and beer/ wine which were ok but when our meals arrived the pasta was very salty for all of our meals and my shrimp (all 5 of... More

The Cabana we stayed in was huge and beautiful. The A/C worked well and the bedding was super comfortable. Full ocean view right out our front door. When we checked in the staff was super aloof and just pointed us to our room not showing us anything about the room That was pretty much our experience with the staff the... More

Our group had lunch here. The location is fantastic with wide open and beautiful views of the ocean. We didn't have high hopes for the restaurant as it was dead and they were out of quite a few things. Turns out they have a broader menu in the evening. I had the pasta amatriciana, which was surprisingly tasty. Even though... More

We took a "pasadia", the hotel was full. We spend most of our day in the beach (that was delicious) and the second floor of the restaurant (that has a fantastic view, shade and is fresh). We drank wine,beer,rum. The food was ok, not bad, but most of it had been frozen. The pools (2) were dirty, they use well... More

We just went there for lunch we didn't stay at the hotel. The view from the restaurant was beautiful. But the food was appalling, undercooked,cold,tasteless and floating in grease. For such a great setting the food was a real disappointment. Could do much much better.

Its rare that i give a 5 point review. But i really appreciated the restaurant. For 3 days we had dinner here. We tried different dishes, meat, fish and seafood. Very good taste and texture. I loved the beef fillet with mostaza. Also desserts are good, like the Narajna surprise. Not so wide of a wine selection but we had... More

We were not staying at the Hotel but did go out there for dinner. We had stayed there last year & loved the Hotel & staff. Unfortunately this was not the case for our dinner on Monday night. The staff was unfriendly, the "manager" was inappropriately dressed & looked as though he had just rolled out of bed at 7:00... More

Hello there, I remember meeting you and your husband last year and I would have truly expected from you a more personal complaint. Anyhow... We are deeply sorry to hear about your "terrible" experience while dining with us. I am surprised that you did not communicate your disappointment to the person in charge that night (who approached your table to... More

We stopped in for a fresh watermelon drink and took in the most spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean. This resort had a swimming pool and lush gardens with a full restaurant on site. I would definitely look into staying here.
