We spent a New Year's week in the Executive Suite (around 150m2) with the marvelous beach view. We booked the room directly with the resort and were satisfied with all the responce/feedback stuff. We used some of their special offers for honeymooners so the side effect was very nice and romantic Candle Dinner on the house. We even did take our two kids (5 and 2,5 y.o.) with us.
The Suite was very big, well furnished and convenient. Room service worked flawless (what was hugelly amazing, as the direct restaurant orders did take 2-3 times more to be delivered than those made to the room (sic!). As we did use these services a lot, I may recommend this (pricey) option.
Service in the only restaurant was were slow. Sometimse you have to wait 15 minutes only to be able to order tea/coffee to the brealfast. Ordering a la carte meals was even worse. Once I did observe our breakfast omellets waiting ready for 10 minutes to be delivered by the "busy" waiteress. In fact it landed on our table delivered cold by the manager himself (we did not intervene - just watching and considering options). Food itself, if delivered and especially in the room service menu, was tasty and generally ok.
The resort's beach is little but clean and allowing access to the public areas for the longer walks. About the locations - you have to be aware that this property is located a little bit in the middle of nowhere so any visit to the grocery shop or other restaurant will require a taxi/hiring a car.
As for the internet, it is available only in he reception area and very unstable.
The pool, little infinity-view one was always very clean but it is not the one you may consider an option for the little kids (1m deep in the most shallow part). Actually property has zero attractions for children, same no gym or other sport amenities (if you do not consider renting snorkels/towells sport activity :)
Regardeless minuses listed above, we spent a nice holidays there.
