Lets get the bad things out of the way first. You will get bitten by mossies so take some repellant. The rooms are rustic and in our view you definately need the air con. The shower drains through the door onto the ground underneath the room but we did not notice any smells so the system seems to work even if it is a little basic. The air con and fridge were noisy in room 19. We had a few ants in the room but nothing to worry about. The bed is covered by a netting but we did not see any mossies in the room during our stay in November. If you like to explore on foot you will need a taxi as there are no bars/shops within reasonable walking distance of the resort. So I suppose we were a little disappointed when we first checked in and went to our room.
Having said that the resort grows on you and by the end of our week we loved it. We just needed to chill out. The sea views from the balcony were fantastic and many a happy hour was spent in the balcony hammock watching the birds and especially the humming birds. The gardens and pathways of the resort are stunning. The food is nouveau cuisine and is very enjoyable but it would have been even better to have the full choice without having to pay the supplements of $25 per meal. The drinks are plentiful and the rum punch reputed to be one of the best. All the staff are wonderful and cannot do enough to make your stay a happy one. The beach is beautiful but the sea drops fairly quickly so non swimmers probably better using the lovely infinity pools. Many people we talked to were returning for the umpteenth time so its a resort that grows on you.
