What a beautiful resort. The rooms were spacious, luxurious, staff was efficient & personal. There was an abundance of chase lounges under sun flittering umbrellas in the sand & at the pool. Only consideration is the resort is very remote and therefore it's really only feasible to utilize their restaurants - we didn't purchase the all inclusive option, however breakfast...

Beautiful resort. Self contained. Golf course is very nice. Beach is very nice. Rooms are comfortable. Only setback is that drive to town is 40 minutes. But rest of all great. It's perfect for family gatherings.

Seven sisters got together at this gorgeous hotel to celebrate sisterhood and a very important birthday. I have no words to express my gratitude with all the staff at this hotel, but most importantly about the staff at Medi Restaurant. Each person that served us during seven unforgettable days was just amazing. They made sure my sister's birthday didnt go...

Terrific resort, gorgeous property and rooms. We had great service at all the restaurants. Only problem arose at the Shore Restaurant the first time we went and that was because the server never appeared for over 15 minutes at our table. We ended up asking for the manager and he ended up serving us for the rest of the evening....

We are booked in to stay here for two weeks. If it wasn't for the tennis centre and the Shore/Jun's restaurant I would never consider returning here. Last night the Shore and the nearby private restaurant were closed so we had to eat at the buffet restaurant. Supposedly you can order a la carte at the Medi restaurant, but the...
