As guests of sister resort Blue Horizons we were allowed to use the facilities at Spice Island.
The property is immaculate, with a tiny pool but right on the beach.
There's an excellent book library and good,free internent just off reception.
We were,however,surprised at how soulless the bar area appeared to be - staff weren't particularly friendly and it had the atmopshere of a retirement home.
It's probably why we met so many Spice Island guests further down the beach enjoying a much better time at Umbrellas.
Certainly when my wife sparked up a cigarette while enjoying a drink by the pool, unaware that there is no smoking allowed ANYWHERE on the resort, we didn't expect a barman to come rushing over and shouting loudly for her to put it out. A small bit of discretion wouldn't have gone amiss.
Also, trying to pay for a drink at the bar with cash appears to throw everyone into a panic, involving hand-written invoices, trips to reception with the cash and generally a ten minute wait to get some change.
Overall while Spice Island looks fabulous there didn't appear to us to be enough to warrant a stay there at high-end prices.
Your parents would probably like it though.
