This hotel is quite luxurious, there is a swimming pool, a bar, and an buffet breakfast and dinner. The hotel offers some live music to dinner. The place is secure. The beach around the hotel is more touristic than elsewhere in SL, but the sea is rich in various fish. You can also come across a turtle.Rooms with a terrace are nice for the sunrise.
