Attending a function there over the weekend we decided to make a weekend of it, and though not cheap for the area it was pretty good overall.
Booked a Sea View Club Room, which had a stunning view of the bay, the room was furnished very nicely, but not particularly large. The air conditioning, though set at an appropriate temperature, left condensation on the windows and made the walls, floor and our clothing damp.
The resort has a number of pools, we actually preferred the infinity pool which was located at another hotel on the site, so a fair trek.
Breakfast was not available in our building, or included in the price, so we had to walk to another building, the breakfast buffet was ample but fairly expensive, and the dining room was very crowded, we didn't bother with breakfast on our second day as it was just too crowded and not particularly good value.
Because the resort is out of the way we ate there on our first night, the Breezeo restaurant was located nearly on the beach and served very nice sea food, again fairly expensive for the area but probably what you would expect in this class of hotel, and taking into consideration that due to it's location the guests are pretty much a captive market. Whilst the food was good the hotel was let down by some of the staff, the restaurant wasn't really busy but we had to chase staff to take our order and deliver our drinks order which was resting on the bar whilst one guy was so engrossed in a television programme that we couldn't get his attention and two waitresses were attending to each others hair.
The hotel offers free Wi-Fi to guests but the offer is hidden, it's not mentioned in the information books, you have to specifically ask for free Wi-Fi at Reception and they will guide you through the process.
All in all not a bad hotel and we will probably stay there again, but they let themselves down in some areas.
