Positive Reviews

Enormous Golf Course and Amazing Views

The golf course is incredibly large and challenging, therefore, fun to play. Guests also noted that the lush views of the golf course and the gardens coupled with the splendid views of the surrounding islands helped them relax during their stay.

Highly Spacious Villas

All of the villas are very comfortable to stay in! Each is spacious enough, with everything well-arranged so as to maximise the space. Moreover, the comfortable king-size beds ensured a great night’s sleep.

Fast and Convenient Check-in

Checking-in at the resort is a breeze since the procedure is very simple and fast, allowing guests to go immediately to their rooms after a tiring travel. Additionally, there are also moments when early check-ins are allowed for the guests’ convenience.

Negative Reviews

On-site Restaurant Closes Early

The dining room closes very early, and this is as an inconvenience as the resort does not offer room service. Additionally, the nearest restaurant is a 15-minute drive away- something that guests are not willing to go through for dinner.

Cleanliness Issues

Guests indicated that the lack of proper maintenance within the property is very obvious. Cigarette butts are all over the area and the gardens are clearly in need of weeding. The floors also require mopping and sweeping.

Noisy and Malfunctioning Air Conditioners

Each room is equipped with an air conditioner to make the temperature bearable. However, guests encountered problems with the air conditioning, citing that the units can get very noisy at times, and that there are moments when they do not function at all.
