10/10 Exceptional

Friendly, beautiful, and worth every penny.
The resort was beautiful and big. The view of the ocean and the walking paths were very pleasant. The staff were extremely professional, accommodating, and friendly from check-in to check-out. We got the meal plan included which the buffet was fanastic. You could get a lot of items cooked to order. Highly recommend going to southern star restaurant...where the hosts, cooks, and waitstaff are phenomenal! They clean the room twice a day so cleanliness was exceptional. Everyone working in the boating department were great especially our captian, Bruno! The outdoor spa is gorgeous! The shark and manta feeding done daily is a great experience. Highly recommend this resort!

The staff is very friendly and simply amazing! Our first waiter name Tara at the Main restaurant was great! He always greeted us and made sure our dining experience was great. The restaurant for the water bungalows provided a phenomenal service. From the time you enter and until you leave they made sure everything was great! This is a great resort to stay. I highly recommend the water bungalow.

מקום מדהים ביופיו. החופים הכי מקסימים שראינו. הוילות על המים זו חוויה מדהימה אך גם הוילות על החוף כיפיות. הבריכה הציבורית מקסימה. אפשר לשחק טניס, כדורסל, פינג-פונג, ביליארד וגולף. האוכל היה מגוון אך לא מהמשובחים.

The Resort is extraordinary, beautiful, nice landscape, beaches, clean rooms and excellent staff, free sport possibilities, nice food. A really big choice of everything was available. I missed nothing. Most important the staff, Elias our cleaning service, cleaned our room 3 times a day, was so friendly and the room was always in perfect condition. Mahesh our table service was really friendly and asking for everything we needed, he always had a chat with us and was the best service I can imagine. Hussein the waiter at the coffee machine was also ver special with us, friendly and bringing the coffee to our table, always there for us. And the diving center has very competent teachers, we made our open water diver course with Sahid and he was an excellent instructor. The diving excursions are also really amazing
