We'd heard good things about Sinalei but our experience well surpassed our expectations. Such beautiful surrounds, tropical planting, to-die for massages overlooking the ocean and such friendly staff. The thing that surprised us the most was the quality of the cuisine - one word: delicious!! The only thing less than perfect was the sometimes inconsistent service in the restaurant -... More

Sinalei is in a beautiful natural environment with a lot of care going into the grounds. Rooms are very thoroughly cleaned and the restaurant food is excellent and mostly sourced locally. Staff are friendly and humorous. Don't expect chain resort opulence, there is no breakfast buffet etc., but everything is tasteful, well thought out and less wasteful.

We have had two wonderful holidays at Sinaleiin the past and booked our third in Aug14. Previously the resort and food were great but that seems to be a thing of the past. Whilst the resort is still beautiful and has great rooms it is totally let down by the food quality. Our 7 day stay started with a gasp... More

I can only give a review on Ava/toga restaurant only as I did not stay here (although I wished that I did because from what I saw I was impressed). Ava/toga restaurant is very romantic as it is on the pier, where you overlook the endless lagoon, and beautiful sunsets. The food is very moorish, well presented, first class. My... More
