The room. We had an ocean view room with floor to ceiling windows and a balcony. We were staying on the first floor nearby the Indochine restaurant in the main lobby area. Bathroom and changing area is quite big as well. You get a shower and a tub, though we haven't used our tub, as it looked a bit on the flimsy side.
The ambiance. When you arrive at the resort, you feel like you entered a fortress with high walls, and then the receiption entrance opens up with serene views of infiinity pools. This resort is there so you could relax, lay on the beach, sleep, read a book.
The service was outstanding, everyting is with a smile and a afterword "...my pleasure". Any issues, the concierge or butler can assist you.
The spa. Yes it is serene and calming, but the price is $270 US for an aromatherapy massage and 16% servicing charge and 5% resort fee on top of that is outrageous. We had 2 massages and the total came out to about $690 US.
Fitness center is quite big, has lots of machines, they provide water and fruits.
The food was average at best. Some other reviewers were speaking highly of the restaurants here, but for me the only decent place worth mentioning was Terra Nostra (the medittarenean place). This restaurant is tagged away in the end of the resort so you would not wander in there by accident. Every other place is not worth your money. The portions are tiny and the taste is not that great. On top of that they charge you like you're dining in New York in a fine dining establisment.
The activities are non-existant. I guess this place is only 1 year old and still needs to improve on that front. There was only a few. I really liked jazzersize by Millissa, stretching by the beach was also good. There is no entertainment crew like in many other places. No shows, no music.
The beach was not that great. It had a lot of sea weed and was really shallow, so you had to go about 100 meters in to actually swim.
All in all it was a good vacation. I got plenty of sleep. Other than that, I was missing the shows in the evening, the good food and daytime activities.
