The hospitality we received at this hotel was very good indeed. Without exception all the staff were very friendly and helpful at all times. As previously mentioned in another review, it is impossible to single one person out.
The evening entertainment was varied and on most occasions really really good, with everyone joining in and having fun and getting to know each other.
Our room was amazing (814) top floor on the end, with beautiful views from the balcony, overlooking the white sand and blue sea and sky. We also had the bonus every evening of watching the beautiful red and yellow birds coming into roost in the trees out the back which was fabulous to witness. On returning to our room later in the evening, we took great delight in watching all the little birds fast asleep on their branches.
The rooms are beautiful and spacious, the bed is huge and comfy, no complaints about our room whatsoever, and it was cleaned to a high standard each day.
The beach area is great, with plenty to do if you can be bothered. :)) and you can have lovely long walks in each direction.
The All Inclusive was fine and any previous issues we had read about before travelling, all seem to have been addressed. Our mini bar was stocked daily with beer, coke, and water and juice as was the tea and coffee, and all included in our AI deal.
During our stay the food in general was good, with plenty of choice, although often it was only lukewarm, which did spoil it a little for us. The wine was ok, not brilliant but still nice to have it included. At Breakfast, there was a good choice, with eggs cooked to order, all very nice, with lovely coffee poured at your table. We also had visits from the lovely birds Red Fody's and the Bulbuls, who will feed out of your hand.
The bars at the beach and around the pool, offered lovely all inclusive cocktails from 11.00am until 11.00pm, and I used to have an amazing G&T. My husband really enjoyed the beer which was like a light lager and very refreshing.
We did a speedboat trip to Isle Aux Cerf, which we booked through Belinda on the beach, and had the most fabulous day out, snorkelling, glass bottom boat trip at the Marine Park, a visit to the waterfall, and then on the beach at Isle Aux Cerf we had the most AMAZING BBQ 3 course lunch, of Grilled whole fish with salad and fresh bread, Crayfish, Prawns, and chicken, with fresh Pineapple, and flambe bananas with Rum. We had a choice of beers or the local Rum, or soft drinks.
I could get free WiFi most of the time, and if I couldn't connect to Veranada, I seemed to be able to connect with the hotel next door!!
We would definitely recommend this hotel, it is a smaller 3* hotel, so I feel its unfair to read some reviews where its being compared to a 5* !!
