My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights.
We had a junior suite which I would recommend upgrading from.
The room was lovely. The bed was the biggest I have ever seen.
The bathroom was fantastic.
The only problem is where it was located.
It was slightly away from the main building with about 45 steps leading up to it which after a while gets a bit too much.
The gym was good.
The shuttle up and down to the town is a great idea, as is the little cart/train that can take you up and down from the beach.
I feel you need to be a little fit to stay here because the hotel is pretty much hills and stairs.
The pool and setting is amazing.
The beach is absolutely beautiful, unfortunately it is not good to swim at because just as you enter the water the bottom is covered in sharp stones etc. my husband actually cut his foot and his finger on the bottom of the sea.
The tour they do to Coral Island is fantastic with great snorkelling.
The staff were very friendly and helpful.
The breakfast I am leaving to last because although the food and variety was excellent it was repeatedly spoilt by the hoards of Indian Mynah birds that are in Plague proportions. The minute you leave the table they are there picking food off your plate and if you don't see it you will come back and continue eating which can be a major health hazard. The entire time you are spending trying to keep them away from your food. Something desperately needs to be done about them. Even if they put huge nets around the outside to keep them out.
Other than that we had a fantastic stay there and absolutely love the reception area building etc.
It is a shame that a 5 star hotel charges to use the internet in your room. It was free in all the communal areas though.
