We received a recommendation to travel here by a co-worker and we not disappointed. We actually spent the first week of our honeymoon here and then the second week in an upscale, smaller property on another island.
All of the other postive comments are correct...this resort has something for everyone. From families, to backpackers, to couples wanting romance. If you are on a honeymoon or can afford it, try to stay in one of the Point rooms..they have air conditioning (although you don't need it) but are more private. The beachfront bures are great too.
We found the prices quite reasonable. Many of the activities did have a cost but the cost was not great. Make sure you do the hike which allows you to visit a neighbouring village and the snorkling tours. The dive costs were reasonable.
The food was good and the portions were huge. The massages were a great deal.
The best part was the staff and the other guests...The staff went out of their way to make sure you were happy and we met such a great mix of other travellers...from people who have been coming since the resort opened to solo travellers to other couples...we were honoured to be witnesses at wedding.
The beach is gorgeous with white sand and there was great snorkling just off the beach.
I hope to return in the future
