Don't expect lush appointments, but enjoy the beautiful setting, abundant food and drink, excellent spa services (great, well trained massage therapists), and helpful friendly staff. It's a work in progress, under new management - You can see the effort to upgrade in everything they do. They want to make sure guests are happy, and we were. Trust the locals who... More

We booked the Vacation package on the web/ Red Tag. The dress code mentioned on the web ( long pants for men) was relating to A La Carte restaurants only. Before we came, we were not aware that In this particular resort, as it turned out, it relates to the buffet dinner as well... If we knew, we would not... More

Dear ariadna35, We have been listening to and talking with our guests over the past few months about the topic of dress attire for dinner. As a result we have changed our policy to allow male guests to wear short pants in our Buffet restaurant (The Cove). The existing standard of long pants was overwhelmingly supported and will therefore remain... More

We also had a late arrival -- WE CHOSE THIS -- the flight times are not a fault of the resort. We arrived on Canjet - it was good budjet airline... More

I was disappointed to say the least. We paid good money expecting a 4 start resort, but that is not what we got. The rooms are aweful!! Very old and run down. We had to change rooms 4 times till we got one that was satisfactory, and even then was still crappy. We had air conditioning problems, water pressure problems,... More

Stayed at this resort in April and have the following thoughts; I was very pleased with the attitudes of many of the staff. In particular there were 3 that really stood out in my opinion. Garvin (a manager at the buffet restaurant, as well as Dwight who is a bar runner) made it his priority to make sure that my... More

The hotel has recently dropped its association with the Almond chain. We went 14 mnths previous to this visit and found most things have improved, especially staff attitude and helpfulness. Rooms have been recently painted and are very comfortable. Our garden room sleeps five at a squeeze with two large beds, this is our ecconomic choice and soon two rooms... More
