We had a 3 night stopover here in early March and the rain started when we arrived and didn't let up till we left. So saying, we still had a great time because it is only a 15 min ride from the old town and has great amenities.
The room was huge and well furnished and the bed was big enough to accommodate the population of some pacific nations. The restaurants were good and the pool is huge and inviting. However, there was absolutely no beach, but I don't know whether that was just due to the weather conditions or if this is permanent.
We met the general manager who seems very able and energetic and he is clearly focussed on making this resort's name in service.
A couple of things I think could have been better. When it was raining, it would have been better to schedule more shuttle buses into the town so guests could get out and about more. Also the heating on the beachside jacuzzi's was turned off. I have stayed in other resorts during rainy spells and sitting in a hot tub watching the rain can be a fun experience.
There was enought good about here that we would really like to come back and try it in better weather.
