From the very warm welcome to the end of our holiday we were made to feel very special guests by all of the staff. The rooms are very comfortable and the Jacuzzi was a lovely added touch in the junior suite we were allocated. The food outlets we tried - the main buffet, the Italian, the Chinese, the Indian and...

Amazing hotel and one the best service that I ever received. I highly recomend that at least one time in your life you have to try it. The rooms are large and with a splendid view over the ocean. All the restaurants are very good, and very very friendly Staff.

Words can not describe how fantastic this hotel is...We were skeptical at first as we had heard it was a large hotel, but upon arrival its on a league of its own. We stayed in the jacuzzi room and as honeymooners we got a great package for the spa and a surprise dinner for 2 on the beach. Every day... More

Please do not be put off by my review if you have booked here but, in my experience this is not a five star resort. You will see from my profile that I have travelled extensively world wide so feel I am well placed to make comparisons. There is no 'wow factor' at all but more than this, there are... More

I would not classify this hotel at 5 star, it's more of a 4 star. The beach was great - pity they can't do much about the hawkers that can harrass one if you want peace and quiet. The restaurant staff was brilliant -exceptional service levels but housekeeping didn't leave much to be desired. The spa is still new and... More

If you've only ever been used to Egypt style resorts you'll be wowed. If you've been to similar resorts in Mauritius, you'll be happy and if you expecting Maldives 5 star you'll... More
