    The concept is great but the product itself is completely average. It's a painstaking 2h drive from the airport in horrific traffic. The rooms are nothing special. The food is average. The facilities did not impress. Don't expect luxury as it's not.More

    All rooms are spacious. Suite gives more privacy and a plunge pool, which is nice. They also are higher up so involve a number of steps to get there.

    I might be too late to help but if you want any chance of wifi in your room you need the room closest to the swimming pool. Apart from that definitely go for one of the rooms overlooking the lagoon.
