Hidden Gem!
We absolutely loved our stay at the Albatross! All of the staff made us feel so welcomed and treated us as family! We loved our surprise dinner on the beach. We highly recommend anyone wanting to get away for a bit to stay here! Would definitely stay here again!

6/10 Good

I like that the property was next to the beach and had a nice pool. I didn’t like their food, it was not buffet. Breakfast was buffet but same food everyday. There was no food variety on the menu to choose from without having to pay extra. I had paid for all inclusive but there was limit on alcohol and had to pay to have top shelf drinks which were regular imported drinks. I would not recommend the resort. It was not worth what i had paid.
