    Wonderfully attentive staff. Lots of space in the grounds, so it felt private even though there were other people around. Right on top of beautiful beach. Loved it!

  • 6.0.Good

    Mediocre stay at eco friendly resort

    Upscale resort, but not as service oriented at the restaurant as at the hotel itself. Rooms are marvelous as well as housekeeping and bell staff, but restaurant below standards in service. Great buffet, something for everyone.. but I had two breakfast meals there, four cups of tea or coffee and each of the four times, I had to waive waitstaff down to get it to my table. That’s unacceptable.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Don’t bother!

    Hotel was being refurbished when we arrived so more than half the facilities were not available. We were not told about this when we booked, if we had of known we have gone elsewhere. Even though the place was a construction site we were still charged top price for the area, The hotel attempts to appease us were pathetic.
