Brianne P: “Probably my favorite place on the island. Volleyball both in the pool and sand. Plus no need to get out of the pool for drinks, they have a swim-up bar. We were drinking a blueberry lemonade drink that was delicious. Highly recommend.”

Ida G: “My favorite place! I’ve been coming here for years and I personally never had even a slightly bad experience. On the contrary, the staff was always nice, atmosphere filled with sunshine and palm trees and drinks always cold and delicious! Can’t wait to visit again.”
