We have recently returned from La Toc after a 17 day stay in a Romeo & Juliet room on the bluff.
The room was as shown on the web site and as we expected, one small gripe is that the lighting is a bit dingy in the evening - so ladies putting your makeup on can interesting.
The room comes with Butlers but ours were not about on our arrival so we had to wait in the club lounge for a while. Not a big problem, and could be due to the fact that we took the helicopter from the main airport rather than the bus. The helicopter was great.
Our butlers were very nice but we aren't that demanding and I don't think we put them under any pressure. They were very good at reserving sun beds and making reservations, but only twice in our entire stay did we come back to little treats in our room - again not a big deal.
When the in-room fridge wasn't stocked (which was often) they would sort it out quickly after a phone call.
Back to reserving sun-beds, if you didn't have a butler this could be a big issue as there didn't seem to be enough to go round especially with a shade When you are paying this much of a holiday you shouldn't have a problem getting a bed or a shade. I know they were running a full capacity whilst we were there so perhaps it isn't so bad at other times of year.
We eat at all of the restaurants and thought the food was good, as was the returning guests dinner. We also eat at Gordons twice and Marios which were also very good.
The beach is quite nice, but the sea was rough whilst we were there and the water sports were only open one day. It is a plus that you can use the other two resorts. The Grand has a better beach and the water is calm, but it can be a bit busy, if you turn left and walk down to the end the beach is wider and quieter. The other resort is also nice, much quieter but well worth a visit.
We only did one trip which was the whale watching, we didn't get to see anything and the sea was quite rough, a few people felt unwell. The resort itself is lovely, the grounds are very well kept and there are some really fabulous views. My husband played golf a couple of times and enjoyed it, he said the course wasn't great but it was OK and it was nice to get a game in.
Overall we had a really good holiday the staff are very friendly and the service was good. Meals can take a while as service can be a bit slow at times, but when you are sitting in a lovely spot it doesn't seem to matter.
The resort is quite spread out but the bus runs round regularly so you don't have to walk up and down the hill if you don't want to.
