Just completed an eight night stay with my wife and 4 year old. We were impressed.
The setting of the hotel is stunning and the execution of the hotel buildings and grounds is perfect. We just loved the narrow sandy streets and alleys which never managed to look contrived at all. Beach was flawless and perfect for sand castles.
We stayed in a beachfront pool villa suite which was fantastic; not just because of its immense size, but also quality and thoughtfulness of design. I've never wanted to spend so much time in and around my room before; excellent private pool and outdoor seating. Top marks.
Food quality was excellent overall and I think offers reasonable value, not forgetting where you are staying. We did Full Board which I think gives a, worth having, value for money boost. Drinks prices are very reasonable, and especially when compared to, for example, long haul Indian Ocean destinations.
We liked the International Restaurant best and it's outdoor dining for lunch and dinner. Get their early for dinner at the weekend if you want the pick of the tables though. We ate in Spice Market once for dinner but I felt it lacked atmosphere. Good breakfasts and we had some pleasant room service lunches by our pool.
Zighy Bar happy hour became a regular feature of our day and cocktails were authentic and as they should be, with the exception of the Mai Tai which wasn't as I remembered.
I've always been cool on the Butler thing based on experiences at other hotels but I'd have to say at SSZB that they pitched it just right. Daily goat feeding trips; no problem at all. Letting my son help with steering the golf buggy; no problem at all. Julius looked after us perfectly, thank you.
Goat lovers will appreciate this hotel and the goats were very charming, albeit that their daily mission is clearly to make it beyond the high wall to goat Paradise ( the Organic Garden.)
We enjoyed cycling around the resort and my son enjoyed sitting in the box on the back of the trike being ridden around.
My wife rated her Spa sessions very much and I appreciated the (same day) laundry service.
I think my wife and I agreed that this was possibly our most enjoyable holiday ever. Our little boy wanted to call SSZB home and that is all you need to know.
But is it good value? Yes, I think it probably is.
A few small niggles ; noisy air conditioning which woke me, food service occasionally slow which I wouldn't expect at this level
