We stayed here for 3 nights - four families with 6 children, and most of us are vegetarians. Barring the first lunch which was very average and slow, the staff went out of their way to make our stay pleasurable.
The Japanese restaurant needs special mention that they gave us such a lovely veg meal (sushi, tempura, rice, teppen tofu, veggies, dessert, etc) that we went back again for another dinner which was even better than the first one. Even the lunch at the pool side and at The Restaurant they gave us excellent meals. The key was speaking to the staff in advance and letting them know our requirements. Overall, the food was fantastic despite us being vegetarians.
The other highlight is the coral nursery. They have created a small one within the hotel which is beautiful. The person in charge does a great job of ensuring no one damages the corals. Since they allow only one person at a time, it takes a while if there is a queue. But worth it for saving the corals.
The kids had a great time in the pool. The slide must have suffered extra wear and tear given how much the kids used it. The kids area is sort of OK. Could be better.
Special mention must be made of Alwin, Nish, Mahesh, Chef Ismail and the Chef at the Japanese restaurant for making our stay a memorable one. Especially Alwin who would make sure we had planned our next meal and had spoken to the chef / manager of the relevant restaurant in time.
