    Dolphins were so cool to watch every morning! Beach was quiet and peaceful. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Everything was clean Prices were a bit high for food and drinks considering how far the resort is from other restaurants. Prices for everything were high in general. Dolphin quest prices were ridiculous.
