The resort was very nice, but it is not the 4 star resort that it claims. It is more like a very nice 3 star resort. The difference being the lack of attention to details. Little things like having a reception party for the guests, but not preparing enough food for the reception so most of the guests did not get any. The resort also seemed to skimp on some things which led me to believe that they were cheap. We had to continually ask for replacement soap and the amount of wine that they would pour into your wine glass was just barely a fourth of the glass.
With the above being said, I would go back to the resort. The setting was beutiful and the staff wonderful. We had an extremely relaxing week. As reported out in previous reveiws there was construction going on during our stay. The resort did a decent job of trying to limit the impact to our stay. The staff spoke sufficent English.
The food provided at the resort was very good and the chef was wonderful. Prices were a little high for the area. We eventually found our way to several very good restaruants that were located a 10 minute walk down the beach. These restaruants were half the price of the Koyao Resort.
The Koyao Resort provided many excellent activities, but again the prices were high for the area. There is a resort within walking distance down the beach that offers the same activities much cheaper. In fact, sveral of the guest at the Koyao Resort went to the other resort to book their activities. If you do take one of the island tours at the Koyao Resort ask for Sword... he is an excellent guide.
Overall it is a great place to enjoy a wonderful island.
