We stayed here for about 5 days in May 2014. We booked the half overwater bungalow.
Looking at the price difference between full overwater and half overwater I would advice to go for the half overwater; most of the full overwater did not have a better view than our bungalow.
Service of staff is great, and location of the resort is good (there is small supermarket close and also some restaurants (restaurants do free pcikup).
They do charge for wifi (how annoying is that in 2014) but if you become a member of the accorr club it is for free.
We booked a lagun tour through the hotel, and that was fantasic. This included swimming with rays and sharks, and we had a great time. Our tour guide was called Ray and he was fantastic. Would advice going with him.
I did get the feeling in the hotel that they charge for everything and not at a cheap rate. The picking up from the airport is a perfect example; you need it and that is how they priced it. I know this is what all hotel do, but don't like that.
Still had a great time there.
