Amazing stay, lovely resort

We visited for 6 nights and truly loved this resort. The Wildlife was amazing - we saw lots of squirrels, monkeys, hornbills... the resort staff were incredibly friendly, helpful and professional. Golf was good with amazing scenery. The spa was worth a visit. The restaurant selections were great. Definitely will be returning.

stray dogs all over

the resort is nice, but has a big stray dog problem. If you like stray dogs, this is the place to go. Especially at the Sunset bar, when having dinner, dogs are wandering through the restaurant. Because tables are not cleared very fast, dogs eat left overs from tables.
Also during the day, stray dogs roam along the beach and in the resort. Unfourtenately some of the guests feed the dogs, which doesn't help.

Friendly staff and excellent golf course

The staff of the Nexus is very nice and helpful, this is one of the biggest assets of this resort. You can go to any of the restaurants and you will be met with a smile. Lala, Florina, Christina, Sal, Roslin and many more made our stay again a memorable one.
The rooms are spacious and clean.
The perfect location of the resort, along a huge and very clean beach is another big plus.
The adjacent golf course offers nice challenges and is in perfect condition.
