We brought a four night stay on a deal site. Was disappointed when we arrived to find they had put us in the furthest room away possible, when there were lots of other rooms unoccupied on our level closer to the facilities (assuming because we got a deal so were not paying full price). We also had a toddler so it was a big trek back to room when we needed to get supplies. Indoor Cinema was not opened for the whole five days we were there, which was disappointing as it rained for the first couple of days. Rooms itself were OK.
I read the other reviews that suggested to take your own snack food which I also recommend. And also take your own snorkelling equipment as this is an added cost (which in my opinion they should atleast offer one complimentary use of to resort guests). Recommend the turtle sanctuary tour. Overall it was OK but I don't think I will be back.
