    Smaller Secrets For Relaxing Time

    Great resort with a small feel for AMR Resorts. Very chill. We loved the staff. Stewart at the pool, William at the pool bar and Jeffreys green basil drink is amazing! The pool is oddly deep, but it forces you to swim. All in all a very nice resort. The beach is very swimmable as well.

    We went back twice on our vacation!

    The service was surpassed only by the fantastic food. We brought fresh mahi from a fishing trip and everyone, including the chef made the meal with our fresh fish so special. Hans and Eddie both provided personable, professional and attentive service. We can’t thank you enough for contributing to our wonderful vacation.

    It was our 45 wedding anniversary trip, the resort decorated our room door and surprise us with complimentary wine!

    Me and my wife had a fantastic stay, all the staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel drivers Nelson and Eli, were attentive and accommodating, every time we call for a ride. We most definitely will go again!
