Stayed here recently for 5 nights. Pure relaxation, with just the right level of service - there for you when you need it. The food was excellent (breakfast and dinner), and being a set menu i got to try some dishes i wouldn't normally choose. The beach there is beautiful, yes, the tide goes out (there are 2 swimming pools there also) but the constant sound of the waves on the reef sent me off to sleep in no time. You can see the money that has been spent decorating the rooms, and they're cleaned to a clinical level each day.
Just went on 1 trip while there, snorkelling, which we booked through 'Ronaldo' (local who comes insite for an hour each evening). It was a great experience (dolphins, octopus etc) with the only downside sitting on the beached boat for an hour waiting for the tide to come in. Not the hotels fault of course!
The available bikes could do with some repair - although they did provide me with a great workout after just 300m along the beach!!!!!!. Didn't get too much hassle from the local touts. Kept telling them i was going home in an hour so was of little use!
Definitely needed the aircon during the night, as it was v humid. So overall it was a great place to unwind and was just what we were looking for. Another 'small' point - it would be good to have a bottle of water in the car transfer from the airport. Will start saving ffor a return trip!
