6/10 Good

Pros: nice grounds on the property, lush and green, nice room with ocean view and soaking tub, delicious menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner, spa services have affordable prices and Lucy gave a fantastic deep tissue massage and the plunge pool was in a nice quiet area. Cons: not a swimmable beach, pool hours 7am-7pm and inconsistent service during meal time. Consistently waiting over 15 minutes for silverware and drink orders and not clearing plates. This was frustrating, especially when it was not during busy hours.

8/10 Very good

The spa services was excellent the food was Good, Room was ok amd so generally all the services were up to the expectations execpt for the fact that they don't have mobile money payment method which is very convenient especially on holidays and weekends..what if the one looses his or her Atm card but has money on their mobile app. They need to have a mobile money payment method for convenience. 7 out of 10.👍
