The resort is located on a very beautiful island with white sandy beaches and pristine waters. Around 45 minutes speed boat ride from airport. Not much corals to see. However, the rooms are outdated and average, though clean. The reception, lounge/bar, play area and restaurant area is old and not maintained. You can occasionally spot a lizard crawling on the restaurant ceiling.
The worst part is the staff. They are unwelcoming. The waiters/bell boys are untrained and rude to talk to. They lack the basic courtesy of wishing the guests. It seems that the hotel has brought a bunch of cheap labour from a remote island who don't know anything about 'hospitality'.
Another noticeable thing is the lack of coordination between room service and reception. We were told to pay for the hotel rooms the moment we checked in. It makes you feel awkward. This does not happen in high quality hotels. They claim that the reception might sometime forget to charge you when you check out!!! Its funny!!
We witnessed this while checking out. We cleared our bills and were about to board the boat back to airport. Suddenly, a security guy came running and told us that you have to clear another(minibar) bill!!! That was embarrassing!! All the other guest looked at us as if we were running away without paying our bills!!!
At the end, I would say that this is an average hotel with unfriendly/untrained staff which is running just because of its location....
