We stayed here as part of our honeymoon in January. When we first entered our room, we were quite impressed with the design; it's clearly new and looked great. But then, we opened the curtains, and one the one side saw a construction site, and on the other saw the Hu'u bar, the local disco. Whoooooooops. We were assured we wouldn't be bothered too much by both, so we decided to give it a try. The club on Friday went on until around 1AM (uurgh), but the construction site didn't give much interference. In fact were were surprised, we expected to be quite annoyed about it.
The next day however, after we got back from our day trip we found a letter apologizing upfront about the club night, 2 tickets to the club and 2 pairs of earplugs. Uhm...this may be good for a few teenage clubbers, but not for a couple looking to celebrate their honeymoon in peace and quiet. Result, I couldn't sleep all night, rather I could sing along to all of the tunes. The next day we decided to complain and staff were luckily happy to grant us a villa for the remaining days of our stay. Indeed there was a lot less noise there, so that was quite an improvement. Down point was that the front door needed to be slammed shut, and other doors were, even though just new, couldn't shut properly at all. This and the poor insulation of our first room did make us wonder how this could be a 5-star property.
Breakfasts were included in our rate and was good. Staff were helpful, spoke OK enough English to get by most basic stuff, and were always friendly.
The spa was also good, visited it twice and have no complaints there.
All in all - we fear they built this resort a little too quick, as some improvements already need to be made. But it's still a nice place to stay, providing you choose one of the villas, or not stay in the hotel rooms over the weekend.
