Just returned from a wonderful stay here; the setting is stunning, the staff were wonderful, the food was excellent, the spa was fantastic and the beach front bungalow was gorgeous. All the ingredients you need for an amazing holiday. It was the perfect escape from the dreadful weather at home.
I would highly recommend a stay here. Given the standards of service received and the idlic location I thought it was excellent value for money. I have paid a lot more and got a great deal less in other resorts I have stayed in.
The staff truly are a credit to the General Manager. I really could not rate them highly enough. Special mention to Valentino and Alfred who were great. Alfred could not have been more helpful.
The shop could do with having a bit more in it and I think they could also do with having info on excursions in the rooms. We kept missing the chap that organised this which was a bit of a shame.
If you do visit here make sure you go to the local turtle sanctuary. Does not look much from outside but it was really interesting.
