I had booked this hotel not long after it opened and then started to see bad reviews on Tripadvisor....but dont let that put you off! - obviously every new hotel has teething problems, but they have been ironed out, although the manager tells me that they are still improving, but I couldnt see what needed to improve!!
The welcome and check in was all good and swift, the rooms are very spacious, the bathrooms are amazing and the setting was beautiful. The gardens are well kept, the pools clean, the beach is swept daily, and there are plenty of lounging/seated options to choose from inc umbrellas.
The hotel seemed peaceful and most of the time you had a small pool all to yourself, but at dinner when everyone was in the restaurant, there seemed more people around, but it has a very exclusive feel to it.
The buffets were great as I was concerned about luke warm buffet food, but I had freshly cooked pasta dishes, stir frys, meats and fish each night by chefs cooking to order. There was a huge choice and it was the same high standard for breakfast. Afternoon tea was also a pleasant addition.
The staff are very helpful and friendly and we were made to feel very welcome.
I would highly recommend it to anyone who is particular about high standard of accomadation, as it is all so new and clean.
The beach is nice when the tide is out, and the security make a presence to try to deter the beach boys compaired to other hotels around the area. The only down size is that you have to cross rocks and coral to get to the sea, so it is not ideal to swim or snokel very easily.
I would go back again.
Thank you to all the staff for a wonderful holiday!
