We are staying here only one night and must say that it has been the best of the 3 resorts we have tested.
There is a reason that this place is ranked #1 on Tripadvisor and I dont see any reason for it to move.
Yes, prices are high for food and drink, but we found all 3 restaurants very good. Western food surprised me greatly as it was FAR better than expected and everyone ate everything. Meals are put together very well and have a nice delicate taste to them. Breakfast - is the same everywhere you go, a MAD RUSH because its included in the price so everyone (local or foreign) wants to pile up their plates to the roof lol. The variety is shocking and amazingly all gets eaten up.
Rooms, we upgraded our rooms and were glad we did it - you can negotiate the upgrade if you are tenacious enough and I was impressed with it being so clean and neat. The bathroom was massive and just kept on going and going. Views of the hotel pool, garden and sea are magnificent and this is a trip that the entire family will remember for our lives.
One downside was the long walks between the blocks of rooms.
Service - the staff are very polite and attentive, they try speaking English whenever they can, often coming up to you just to say hello and find it how your stay is. When replied in Chinese, they are often relieved with being able to relax back into the mother tongue :)
Value - nothing is cheap on this island and it is obviously set by the simple rules of supply and demand.
Internet is a serious let down here if you want to connect with wifi outside of the lobby/restaurant area - but hey!!! You are on holiday so put the gadgets away and relax!!
