Some of the best souvenir shopping was along the beach in small stands. Great prices, friendly vendors, and lots of variety!

Overall, this resort is fine. The swimming pools are clean and warm; the rooms are clean and well air-conditioned; and the ocean water is spectacularly warm. The buffet food was plentiful but the quality was just OK - it filled us but there wasn't a...More

I wouldn't recommend to drive by yourself on the island, as local roads are pretty busy with motorbikes, buses and so on. As the island does not have walkways, people walk on the streets. Either you book a bus/taxi from the... More
