The room was great, with a fantastic shower, although it did take a while to warm up. The house keeping service at the hotel was brilliant and the standard of cleaning... More

Stayed here for 2 nights. The staff was pleasantly polite and very helpful. We had a few special requests when we booked and it was nice to experience all requests were in order when we checked in. From the entrance to the hotel we could see that it's well architected with scenic surroundings. We checked into a Lagoon View room... More

A very nice, luxury hotel, both at the beach and lagoon. Very friendly staff, super food (though we did not use the buffets), perfect pool (incl pool staff). We booked a "Love package" which was quit an experience, although at arrival staff was not aware of this and therefore the intended surprise for my wife failed.

The size of the room, the facilities within and the bathroom along with its amenities was excellent. The only drawbacks were that the wifi did not work to the room despite us informing the... More
