“Another excellent stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 January 2014

Just returned from a third excellent stay at this resort.

As per previous reviews, the renovations works are still on-going at the resort. I can honestly say however that this did not in any was disturb us nor detract from the experience of the resort. Yes certain sections of accommodation are closed for renovation and one of the restaurants has moved location (but the same excellent menu available) – but that’s about it. We experienced no noise. My only negative comment about the renovations is that that it is not clearly stated on the website and I was not advised of this on booking (done by e-mail) nor was any discount offered in relation to the renovations being on-going.

In fact the work in progress renovations did us a favour in that the resort seemed less than half full and as a result it almost felt like a private resort – not that it has ever felt busy.

We had one of the newly refurbished rooms which was great - furnished to a high standard with an exceptionally comfortable bed and powerful shower.

The staff throughout the resort were, without exception, extremely friendly and helpful. As returning guests, this was recognised and our stay was personalised accordingly which was a nice touch.

Food was superb and fair value given it is easily up to international standards. The Happy Hour at the Sands pool (1730-1930) is great value for booze but take a quick trip to one of the duty free outlets on the island and you will find beer cheaper than coke!

We took a great boat Mangrove Tour via the resorts seasports centre. Had an excellent and knowledgeable guide (Zoher) who gave us a great tour through the mangroves near the resort and I highly recommend taking a tour with him if you can whilst there.

On the negative side – wireless internet provision is free (which is commendable) but I found it to be patchy and slow and certain sites (including Facebook) did not seem to work at all. I would hold that fixing this is part of the renovations.

This resort is a real gem, so all in all another lovely relaxing stay and we’ll be back.

Just four days here but amazing ones. The beauty of the spot quite took us by surprise. Spacious and well appointed rooms, good choice of food, lovely pools. The location is stunning. The facilities excellent.

We just loved the boat trip into the mangrove swamps with the most informative and humorous of guides.

Truly glorious weather.

But the jewel in the crown is the courtesy of ALL the staff whose common intention seems to be to spoil guests, attend to their every need and make their day and stay a good one. They certainly succeeded with us.

Unreservedly recommended for relaxation, enjoyment and stress-beating.

We stayed here for a week over the new year period and enjoyed a fantastic family holiday. The resort is situated on a stunning private beach which is patrolled by security staff. The rooms are large and well equipped - and they will be even better when the upgrade completes later this year. (And contrary to some other reviews we werent at all inconvenienced by the upgrade works). The restaurants were very good with excellent a la carte options. However, it is the staff that really set this resort apart - they were oustanding. We will definitely return!

Room Tip: All inclusive option is very good value.

We visted this resort in 2010. A very neatly kept resort with decent restaurants. Very efficient staff. The drive from the airport takes you through a forest and you see this very tranquil resort.
A nice resort with a private beach

We have arrived on the 25 December evening, the check in is done directly in the room which is convenient, during the check in process the hotel staff shown the map of the hotel and surprise surprise half of the resort is under construction! The buffet was overpriced, although I know it was Christmas , 250 euros for 4 people is far too much without any drink. We've been waiting 3 and half hours to have the linen for the children's bed then Finally after my third call arrived and we could put the kids to bed.
The morning after once opened the windows I could realize withy eyes the construction site.. Horrible view.
The day after i've negotiated with the staff to pay for the all inclusive package, which finally didn't bring any savings.
Overall I think is a decadent hotel which cannot be considered a five star altough the staff always been kind with us.
Certainly won't come again.

Dear Nicola C,

Thank you for sharing your recent experience at our resort. It is unfortunate that our resort did not fulfill all your expectations. We have taken note about your remarks including the room view which faces a section which is off limits or behind hoardings. The view from that newly refurbished room which you occupied will soon get better as the trees and garden restores luster. This is a challenge for us at the moment particularly some rooms which is angled towards an area of resort facility which is not completed. Please do accept our sincere apologies for your dissatisfaction and thank you for highlighting to our attention.

Happy New Year with kind regards from the Management.

I came here on Business travel (teambuilding) in Oct 2010 not 2013... but I had an amazing experience here that I am craving to go back again with my husband.

This place is just lovely, for family, business, friends, couples or just solo!
The beach is awesome, lonely white smooth sands. We can cross the ocean on low tides over to another small island across the beach.
The food is amazing, the fine dining gets pretty slow though.
The room is just lovely, the in-room dining is superb, service is great, breakfast is awesome and the swimming pool is cool (salted water + sandy pool). The best part is if u take the all-inclusive package, u can eat and drink all u want anywhere and anytime!

The library is amazing! U get a peaceful, comfy sofa, books to read (there's also DVD u can rent to ur room), and their cocktail fruit mixes are awesome! The view from the library 2nd floor is spectacular...

Its like living in heaven over here! I'm keeping my eye out for offers so I can come back with my husband and hopefully in the near future, with my "family".
