My partner and I stayed for 7 nights here, and we enjoyed every minute of our stay. When we arrived we were shown to our room personally by one of the reception staff, who gave us information about the resort and our room as we went along. We had an Ocean view room, the view was beautiful, we were lucky that our room was pretty close to the beach so was great to sit out on the balcony and watch the waves. The rooms are nicely laid out, very comfortable beds, and the shower is fantastic! only downside is there was no bathtub. The products they provide are all L'Occitane. There are Nespresso machines in the rooms and they provide 6 free capsules, if you want more than that you can buy them in the gift shop, or do what I did and bring more with you from home.
We had breakfast included in our booking and it was superb, They provide a continental buffet and you can also choose one entree each. We ate at the Red Salt restaurant one night and the meal we had was also great. There are two bars, one by the pool, the other next to the restaurant, both are great and the staff are very friendly, we had many really good cocktails there.
They have a desk where you can grab beach towels, hire water sports equipment and book surfing lessons, the guys who work there was really helpful and gave us lots of information about which beaches where best for snorkeling, and what areas to avoid.
If you hire a car for your trip then the only option is valet parking, this is included in the resort fee. The guys who do the valet parking are the best! so friendly, helpful and professional. As our flight was quite late at night and check out is at 12, we were really happy to discover they provide a complimentary departure service were you can hire a room with a shower for an hour, this meant that we could have a day by the pool and at the beach. We had a massage at the on site spa, it was fantastic! really recommend the lomi lomi. If you do then you might want to book ahead by emailing the hotel as they get booked up.
This resort is boutique, its not very big, but that is what we loved about it. Its not somewhere you would probably want to take children to as they would get bored, its more suited to couples on their honeymoon. The level of service they provide is just fantastic, all the staff are so helpful and friendly, This is probably the best hotel i've stayed in for that. We can't wait to go back.
