We felt lucky to get a sun lounger sometimes because the grounds have been poorly designed and common space has been sacrificed to cram in awkwardly placed guest villas and a giant Las Vegas style wedding chapel. There is only a thin finger of loungers by the main pool which are practically on top of each other.
No 5 star touches like freshly rolled towels already on the loungers, cold water brought to you when you sit down.
The guest to staff ratio at the pool makes it feel a bit like a packed restaurant back in London.
They have a quieter cabana area the other side of the Chapel but the roofs of the cabanas were falling to bits.
The drinks menu is in broken English, yet cocktails are more expensive than Ku De Ta next door.
Even adverts for the place which we saw in local magazines had embarrassing spelling and grammar errors. This has no bearing on the quality of the hotel, but just makes the whole operation look a bit amateurish.
It's a good hotel, but not a truly 5 star experience in our opinion. We stayed in other resorts on the island during our trip which were cheaper and felt more polished.
