My wife and I stayed here for 5 nights and the first thing I will mention is the extreme high level of service! There was one little mistake under our stay and after that the hole staff did everything they could to make us feel like a “Queen and King” for the rest of the stay. Our room/suite (no 327... More

We spent a week at the resort. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the resort is located in very quiet corner of Tamarina Bay. There is nice trial along the beach to Tamarina Bay and we walked across to the Tamarina Hotel to have a nice beer. The food is quite good and caters sufficiently for vegetarians as... More

A really nice place with wonderful staff and an great private location if you want to switch off. I would recommend going half board as the evening themed buffets are fantastic and to eat elsewhere is in reality a taxi ride - good for water sports, great Phoenix beer on draught, what more do you need !
