We stayed in the 3 BR apartment for 4 nights over the Christmas period. It is very basic and designed for the long stay guest who brings their own mod cons. However very clean and comfortable. It has rooms on 3 different levels with stairs obviously involved so can be cumbersome when luggage and kids are involved.
We had a look at the luxury rooms and the suites surrounding the beach and they were definitely of a higher standard than the 3BR apartment and will be where we will stay next time we are there.
Great pool area. Pool is too deep for 5-6 year olds but its still a nice area and if they can swim not a problem. Kids pool is too small though and the spa is pay per use.
Breakfast is good. Otherwise food is basic and portions small and nothing to write home about given the multitude of great food choices nearby.
Staff were great particularly the lovely ladies at the reception who took my argumentative nature in their stride and provided a great service.
Access to the beach is direct but the path to the beach through the shrubbery could do with some attention. Everyone said the northern beaches were crowded but at this stage that seems to start at Calangute which is the next beach. This one was still relatively quiet and very beautiful. Watched the dolphins from he shack on the beach the first day we were there.
We will be definitely be back soon.
