Delicious food from on-site dining venues

Past guests are very positive about the meals served at the resort, with all of the dining venues and bars praised in reviews. The restaurants reportedly serves delicious meals at all times of day, with reviewers agreeing the seafood dinners are a highlight.

Luxurious, well-appointed rooms

Pools very well received

With five outdoor swimming pools at this resort, past guests agree there is no shortage of space for everyone to enjoy the sunshine, reportedly pristine grounds and ocean views. The fact that there are separate childrens pools is also well received, with many parents commenting happily on this aspect of the resort.

Negative Reviews

Mixed reports on condition of beach

A number of reviewers found the beach to be less than the tropical paradise they were imagining, due mainly to natural debris such as the palm fronds that find their way into the water.

Some concerns regarding maintenance

While these reports are not in the majority, there are a number of past guests who felt their room and the hotel in general could do with more attention to maintenance. Some reviewers say they thought their room was a little ‘tired', while others had more specific issues such as smells of mould.

Expensive prices for transport

According to reviewers, the price for a transfer to the airport - or elsewhere - when arranged by the hotel is considerably more than when other options are used.
