Booked as a last minute escape with husband. Was told it was officially a 5* and thomas cook rated it as 4* which is probably more closer to the reality. It was a nice enough resort- stunning views and a beautiful beach. The staff were lovely and accomodating. The rooms were pleasant, clean and suffice but we were attacked by mosquitoes quite badly even when having the doors closed at all times.
The food was ok- breakfast being the best meal so meaning you had to be awake by 9 at the latest. We are vegetarian so let me warn all the fellow veggies be prepared to eat salad and bread rolls! All the food was put into warmer dishes which by the time you took it to your table it was cold. There was hardly anything for proper veggies that do not eat fish or egg. I have to say though that the manager of the restaurant tried to get the cook to make stuff for us on one night but that was it. The all inclusive wasnt all that it shouldve been as you couldnt get room service of the meals, breakfast finished at 10 and dinner was done by 9:30pm. The afternoon tea was just chips and ice cream. I really expected more.
All in all it was a nice break but I wouldve liked to have ventured out more- this place is in the middle of nowhere so diffcult to go anywhere. The 'cave' excursion by boat is a rip off- you go next to the caves but never actually inside any and it literally is just a boat ride for a lot of money; we found out we couldve got a boat for ourselves for the whole day for a lot cheaper so dont do it!
Oh and there are WAY TOO many steps in this resort- you literally have a work out everytime you move! They have a cabel cart lift from the top to the restaurant which was broken during our stay so we had to climb a thousand steps wherever we wanted to go!
Also not sure if it was the time we went but it was more a resort fr the older generation, I think we were 1 of about 3 other young couples.
