The hotel is right on the beach and it’s a lovely sandy beach, with some mangroves. The pool was nice we enjoyed swimming in the late evening. They staff was helpful arranging tours and transportation to El Nido. Also a free shuttle to the Robinson Mall but you do have reserve both to and from in order to insure a ride since they can rent the shuttle out to guests. The restaurant was nice and the food was good, did enjoy the beautiful sunrise and sunset there. The ground floor tends to get people parked outside you veranda area unless you stake claim to the area early!
