I would Highly recommend a deluxe room towards the Sirrius restaurant/bar. The sirrus restaurant is perhaps the most peaceful with the adult only thai restaurant just behind it. During our 10 day stay there was absolutely no problems with reservations and the staff were quite accommodating when we changed our mind at late notice. A top tip for those that still want to try the thai menu but have kids, they'll serve it in the sirrius. In 10 days we didn't have a bad meal. The food was plenty full and of excellent quality. Occasionally the food was slow to arrive, but who's in a rush. Staff were attentive and always topping up the wine! Outside the dining hours substantial bar snacks are available. Try the sirrus pool for these. As well as the bar snacks there is a very underused afternoon tea. Whilst I tried not to over eat, it is next to impossible.
This place is very well run. During our stay tropical storm Felleng passed to the north and then down the west of the island. With it plenty of rain showers. As each one finished the staff were straight out mopping the floors and wiping down the tables.
The only criticism I have is regarding the sailing equipment. The hobies and the lasors all need servicing. As soon as the wind came up sails ripped and equipment broke. However that needn't ruin your holiday as availability is excellent as you just come in and get another one.
Regarding the proximity to the airport, well we chose it because of the 10 mins transfer and are happy we did. I didn't find aircraft noise a problem but it is worth bearing in mind if you book a resort so close to an airport.
During the stay I used the medical facilities. Both the nurse and the doctor were very good.
