The Shandrani is in a gorgeous setting however the amount of children there spoiled it for us. I would not describe the hotel as being for couples. We had our wedding here which was amazing, despite the poor weather we had in the 3 weeks we were there. The food was excellent in all the restaurants, however again children ruined the intimate setting as the Bouccanier restaurant is adults only (over 12) however is situated so you can hear all the noise from the buffet which most nights consisted of screaming kids. One night in the Bouccanier 16 russians who apparantly couldn't speak English walked straight past the Manager and sat down, there were 8 kids in the party, one in a pushchair with a tv on the whole time. Completely ruined the evening. The Tek Elephant food was fantastic, however we were booked in there one night but when we arrived were told it was closed for a corporate function. Not ideal but the staff there were excellent and sat us in the Sirius restaurant with the Tek menu. I think without the staff at this hotel over the Sirius end the hotel would not be the same. We didnt go to the bar with the entertainment as we tried it once and it was like a kids playground. Overall fantastic food and drink choice, beaches lovely however sand very stoney and sea urchins all over, weather was rainy the whole time with not a lot of sun! Would recommend Casela Park (get a taxi) and a boat trip on Big Bamboo (8000 rupees for the day). I enjoyed my time here but as a couple would not return as its very much family orientated.
