It was a nice romantic place. Not big like the Memories. The food was very good. You just need a little bit of imagination. People working there are really nice and respectful expect for the guy from sunwing. He was really nice on the first meeting but after that, difficult to even smile or answer our questions. He sold us the wrong safari trip.
At the hotel I didn't appreciate the noise: Music often at the beach, then in the afternoon at the pool, on lunch and dinner time in the restaurants... Too much for me.
For the activities if you want something really interesting I suggest you to ask the people in charge of the kayaks to bring you to a coral place with the catamaran. You will swim for 45 minutes with thousands of fish. No music on the catamaran and only 4 people max on it. Really intersting. It's only 2 hours and you don't need to wait for the bus like you do in bigger activities. We also did the big catamaran with a stop on an island. It was ok but music again all the way. There is no bodyboard. Beach really long and nice, you can walk as much as you want, go right for a longer walk.
