I stayed here with a friend for 4 nights. My first impression of the resort was, "Really?" It didn't look like the pictures online, the grass was dead and the courtyard just looked cluttered and brown. Could have just been the time of year though. Our first room was a huge disappointment, we had a cockroach infestation. We discovered about 6 or 7 of them in the bathroom one evening and had someone on staff come and kill them with poison. We decided to stay in the room that night anyway - big mistake. I woke up at 3am with a cockroach in my hair! After that we switched rooms (friend wanted to switch resorts... I wanted to give them another chance). The staff was apologetic and helpful. They gave us two new rooms to choose from. We got a nice upgrade for no extra charge - cockroach-free this time! I think the problem with a lot of the rooms is the cement bathroom flooring and spaces between the front door and the surrounding wall. We noticed the cockroaches coming through little holes in the cement bathroom. There was absolutely no sealing (we saw this in a couple of the other rooms too - not sure if they had the same problem). Also, when our front door was shut, there was a lot of space where there was no proper seal.
I think the best thing this resort has going for it is the staff. They were very warm and always smiled. The free DVD rentals came in handy during rainy afternoons, and they have an extensive library. There's also a work-out room with some treadmills and equipment. The free breakfast was probably the best complimentary one I've had. It was substantial and they changed it a bit every day so we didn't get sick of it :) The restaurant (Uncle Jiggs Bistro) has great food at great prices.
Something we found a little disappointing was its proximity to the beach. It is only 500m from the beach (as advertised); however, that section of beach is mostly private and not very nice. It's actually about a 15 minute walk to the public beach area - still, not bad, but we were expecting to be closer to the action. We did find many mid-range resorts right on the beach that had comparable prices to Green Village, and had we known that we probably would have booked one of those. However, if location convenience doesn't concern you, Green Village is still a good choice. Because it's off the main 'strip' it's very quiet.
