We recently stayed here as our son was getting married in the resort. The facilities were excellent and well maintained .Choice of 3 pools, good selection of restaurants,bars, 10 pin bowling and nice beach good for swimming.However our accommodation left a lot to be desired. We had a large resident gecko in the room which left droppings on the bed and floor and fell from the ceiling to land on my husband during the night. We slept with the lights on all night to try and keep it at bay. I also got up one morning to fid a large spider on my arm. Sometimes there was no hot water in the shower or no water at all in wash hand basin. When we complained about the gecko they sent housekeeping to change the beds and sweep out the room which did not really solve the problem.I realise the presence of such wildlife is inevitable given the location but feel we should not have been expected to live in such close proximity with it in what claims to be a 5 star resort.
