How to Get There
Very welcoming staff , especially on reception, very eager to please , beautiful surroundings, well kept pools , comfortable loungers , especially around the pool areas ,lovely clean rooms very good sizes , excellent food , good entertainment . Free water sports were very good .
Billed as a 4/5 star resort, I would suggest low 4 star by European standards
Positives. This resort has great beach access with waiters who will deliver drinks to your sun lounger. It also had access to free chilled fruit water which was a nice touch. Twice a day one of the guys came around with frozen grapes/ice cream/canapes etc.
Breakfast was good quality, not exceptional, but changed a bit so you got something new each day.Omelettes made to order is a nice touch.
Negatives. Its expensive. The govt add $35 a day (about £15) per room. This added an £154 to our extras, plus every bill has a mandatory 10% service charge. 2 nice lunches & a couple of nightcaps and our bill was well over US$1100.
Now on to my main problem....the staff. Some have obviously been to the US and couldn't do enough for you, but the locals who are just there to work can be downright rude. I don't want to slur the entire staff, there were some exceptions.
Music around the pool would have been nice.Wimbledon & Cricket world cup were on and you either watched it in your room or went to a local bar a mile away, but the hotel wasn't showing it apart from 1 small tv behind the pool bar. Big sales opportunity lost. We waited over an hour for someone from in-room dining to call us back so assumed they were too busy to offer room service. Reported this reception who apologized. All the pools are small and only 5ft deep. In summary, the overall package is a bit amateurish, over priced and past its sell by date
An amazing property. Staff very lovely and professional. The front desk girls were very efficient and friendly at check in and gave us all the necessary information that we needed about the property. The property is so beautiful and well kept, you could literally just sit by the pool and listen the calming sounds from the water falls which runs through one of the lazy pools. The duty manager Juanita was also very friendly and added to our stay being extra special. Thank you Juanita.
The room was very beautiful and clean. The water sports guys were also very friendly.
The only difficulty i would say we had was the dept of the pool. It’s a minimum 4ft all through so for kids can be a little difficult to handle. A kiddies pool would be ideal to have since it’s a kids friendly hotel
