The property features an exclusive 22 bedrooms, but also has great amenities like an on-site bar and restaurant, beach, dive shop, swimming pool, and plenty of hiking trails.

Guests looking to eat on-site will particularly enjoy Manta, as they have some nice on-site dining possibilities. Green Moray is one such possibility, which is a convenient choice for vacationers craving some Caribbean food. Then head over to the hotel's on-site bar.
