We stayed in a two roomed apartment with family, only a few steps from one of the two swimming pools. Dealing with the oppressive heat (42deg) and 100% humidity was a little tough for someone from the deep south of NZ and there was no air-con in our unit, only a ceiling fan to circulate the heat, so my wife requested a free standing fan to help minimize the discomfort. The temp dropped down to the mid 20's at night and sleep for us was only sparodic.
The staff at that time were all local people and simply wonderful, friendly and helpful, but at times we had concerns at how they were spoken to by the owner. We were amongst a group of 40 Kiwis, there for a wedding. The resort truly excelled with the wedding preparations and it went off without a hitch.Security roams the resort at night, to repel the stray dogs that wander through and also remove any Tree-Boas that may stray into the area. I saw the biggest spider imaginable and reacted accordingly with a vertical leap to safety.
Pleased I went and was able to form my own opinion, but would be in no hurry to return, unless we booked into a resort with guaranteed air-con.
