Just spent a week here, hotel well situated, very clean, good rooms, good beach with plenty of sunbeds and shade if required. because the beach is on a reef you can't really swim unless you have shoes on to get across the rocks and you do have to go a good way out to get any depth. Swimming pool more of an attractive/cooling down spot than a swimming pool although there is a slightly larger square one but used by the children.
Plantation rooms are nice but would avoid as the hotel front is on a main road so could be noisy, the seaview rooms are hampered by palm and seagrape trees so not really worth the extra money plus they are next to the beach bar/restaurant where the entertainment is so could be noisy upto about 11pm. Entertainment was very good. Gym is small but quite well equipped and no one in it usually, no spa there now.
Management really do need to sort out staff training particularly in the restaurants, having to ask staff for cutlery 4 times from 4 different people daily not really acceptable, food could also be repetitive only so much bbq food you can eat at lunchtime and much the same in the evening. Didn't get a chance to eat al a carte as we booked it twice and got a buffett both evenings with no warning having booked as required. Also lack of atmosphere in Rachels, bright lights almost canteen like especially as you were serving yourself. We did quietly bring this to management attention and were given champagne as it was a special birthday celebration so they did act on it but hope that they spend more time ensuring enough staff on duty and better training.
Overall clean, good location and comfy beds, pillows not so good.
Race course directly across from hotel, a good afternoon out.
Probably wouldn't return although want you to remember what we are looking for may not be what you require.
