My girlfriend and I stayed here for 8 nights. The service was outstanding, the moment we arrived at the airport our taxi was waiting for us where they took our bags and we got into a nice air conditioned vehicle. We arrived at the resort where they took our bags, we waiting in the lobby which wasn’t air conditions, but we got a lovely cold fresh juice while we waited for our room.
We arrived at our room (quite a hike from the lobby or taxi drop off). It was lovely and had a view of the ocean and the pools. The room was clean and made up lovely. We booked a room with a Jacuzzi, but our Jacuzzi didn’t work. So we had to go down to the lobby and wait for them to arrange us a new room which took over an hour, we were a little mad as we were just sitting there wasting time. But once that was sorted we got a new room and it was just as lovely. About 100m closer to the lobby also.
The breakfast buffets were really great. Catered for everyone of different nationalities.
Althogh there wasn’t enough variation in food everyday. And you get a little bored of eating the same thing everyday. Also, the children running around the tables and too and from the food was bad. They bumped into you and got in the way, they were also very loud. Other than that it was brilliant. The pools were great, the infinity pool was nice and quite over looking the ocean. The others were really great and warm. The weather was awful when we stayed which ended up flooding our balcony which meant we couldn't use our Jacuzzi. The resort was lovely, a little overpriced, but great. The staff were all beautiful people and made you their number one priority. The majority spoke really good English and they all said hello when passing.
Would mainly recommend to families with young children.
