We checked in for two nights at the end of the year last year. Because we had booked two rooms, and we were a family of five, the hotel kindly upgraded us to the 2-bedroom villa on the beach. It is very spacious. And had great facilities, but was a tad dark for my taste. Very close to the main pool there, too. The only thing was that when it rained, we had to walk in the rain to the restaurants, which meant navigating slippery pathways. No covered walkways from the villa.
Even though the hotel was more or less at 98% occupancy, the hotel staff were still quite enthusiastic and the service was good. Food was quite decent, and we had nothing to complain about the breakfast. My daughters loved the lemograss/coconut ice cream.
The only "problem" I had was with the New Year's celebrations. We had an early flight on Jan. 1st., so we all went to bed at 10pm. Stupid idea. Our villa backed up onto the pool bar area where unbeknownst to us they decided move the New Year's party there. So at 11:50 pm, we were all woken up by very LOUD music which lasted for two hours or so. I thought they were going to confine the New Year's party to the lobby due to the rain. My bad. Sort of regretted accepting the upgrade, but hey, have to take the bad with good, right?
Anyway, had I been younger (and not part of a party travelling with my elderly mother, and having an early flight the next day) this would not have bothered me -- and I might have just joined the celebrations instead of burying my head in the pillows.
