Our stay was several weeks after the COVID-19 closure. The hotel opened but it was not very welcoming. Skeleton staff, only a few lights on at night, including the lobby, front entrances and hallways. Literally none on anywhere else. The restaurant was open but with such a small, inadequate menu that we ate at the hotel next door whose restaurants were all open (with social distancing of course). So disappointed in the slow opening over here.

The tranquility of this resort is great for a laidback vacation. Not for adventure seekers. Super love the swings at different spots in the resort. Bathtub in the balcony of the deluxe room that we stayed in made up for the lack of opportunity to try out their seaside swimming pool for my little girl.😊👍
