Our arrival could have been handled a little more professionally. We were merely greeted by a young lady who walked in behind us, key handed over to a young fellow who showed us the room and that was it. We were not sure where to go for dinner, what time were meal times (we were paying for full board and lodging), dress code, etc. We eventually found the relevant information in the Guest Information folio which contains outdated information on other travel options.
The room was comfortable enough but the bathroom amenities were not the greatest - we have seen much better in similarly graded establishmets during our travels. No clean or tumble dryed towels provided during our 3 night stay.
The location of the resort is absolutely fantastic with the long beach where you can walk for miles. The food was absolutely fantastic and staff extremely helpful and obliging (with the exception of arrival). We would return but would probably look for something similar on the Wild Coast for a future trip.
