This was our 2nd trip to this resort in 3 years. We were last here in October 2007. I still find it difficult to understand how this resort still gets the odd bad review; people must either be very picky or serial complainers.
Anyway this place is fantastic; we were in the Golden club area of the resort, which is located right near the beach. The rooms/suites are very nice and well equipped with TV, iron, hair dryer, mini fridge etc. Everything you would expect. We tipped the maid a couple of dollars each day and she kept our room very tidy and mini bar stocked.
We went to the beach most days as the pool areas tend to get busy and a little noisy with music being played by the Entertainment staff as they run various activities in or around the pool. So if you want somewhere quiet to read a book etc I would recommend the beach, which is very well looked after.
Depending on the package you have booked you get a number of a la carte restaurant bookings per week. Although the buffet is fantastic with lots of choice every night, I highly recommend booking your a la carte restaurant for that extra special touch. Our favourites where the gourmet, Italian and seafood restaurants.
The evening’s entertainment was very good, I highly recommend the Lion king and Michael Jackson shows. If you don't want to watch the shows you can enjoy a drink in the lobby.
Although English isn't the first language of the staff, they understood us very easily and were very friendly.
All in all our holiday was fantastic and I recommend it to anyone.
