    Beautiful resort. Loads of amenities. Had water sports experience as well which was well-managed. Only thing that could have been better was the Indian cuisine food. Compared to other cuisines, the quality and variety of Indian dishes were very limited.

    Beautiful resort with amazing beaches and an air of calm. We booked a sunset villa and it felt like we had our own beach. My only negative was the prices at the resort. Despite being all inclusive, we did want to use the other restaurants. This was an expensive endeavour though and some of the pricing seemed surprising, occasionally main courses were half the price of starters. Staff were lovely and friendly and the resort itself was immaculately maintained despite stormy weather overnight. My other thing to not is the journey getting there. We were luck that our flight lined up with their domestic transfer, I could imagine this would be a pain if the flights didn’t match up.

    The location and island are awesome!!! Hard to beat. What I did not like were the rules/games played on the all-inclusive. For instance, after a couple mile run I walked up to the bar by the mini golf course and asked them to refill my water bottle. They said they could not do it because I was all-inclusive. If they did do it....they would have to charge me. Come on.....that is ridiculous!!!
