Current Time On The Island
We were the first guests to arrive at this very new hotel and were blown away at how spectacular the resort is. The room we had, had a spectacular view of the ocean, the staff were wonderful and always try to please us. I loved sitting by the pool and having a cocktail or I could take a few steps into the ocean and go for a swim.
