The resort is beautiful; however, the rooms are slightly deceiving. They have not been renovated for some time and could be cleaner. The hotel is currently under construction as they have added some new rooms. The hallways are VERY noisy with people talking and doors slamming. So, if you plan to sleep later than 6:30 or 7am, you may not want to stay here. The rooms/hallways give a "hostel" type feeling. However, the hotel is safe, secure, and in an excellent location...right on the beach and just down from many restaurants, shopping, etc. The swimming pool is small, but really clean and nice. Internet is only available in the restaurant/pool area. The staff are very friendly; however, the service is not exceptional. The breakfast is the same almost everyday and not worth bragging about. There are many other restaurants around, so not an issue. We would definately stay here again as it is one of the nicest hotels for it's price range.

... lows of the beaten track, I caught glimpses of the island's bucolic beauty here and there — verdant rice paddies; lush mangrove forests; nipa shanties dotting the fertile, sunlit expanse; farmers astride their beasts of burden; fowl, pigs and dogs scampering every which way as we approached them.
The idyllic visuals had a soothing effect; I felt light and at peace with the world, as if a cumbrous burden were taken off my ...
