Stayed here for our last three nights after leaving our cheap and nasty accommodation elsewhere. They gave us a special deal and even though it is usually out of our budget, it was worth every cent. Motu at the front desk is very pleasant to deal with and always helpful.
The courtyard pool suite was amazing! Everything about this place wowed us. The bathroom was pure luxury. It also had a microwave and small kitchenette (which we didn't use).
The resort is constantly kept immaculately clean.
Oceans restaurant was great on seafood night, and Windjammer is a must -not- miss. We went there twice.
They have a very reasonably priced massage facilities.
There are some broken glass along this stretch of beach, but you need reef shoes anyway. It wasn't a big issue for us.
Highly recommended place for a romantic get-a-way, couples etc. We also stayed a few nights at Muri beach Club, but it didn't have the same feel. I think it was too modern, and not island-style.
Note: the locals are on 'island time' throughout the island. Do not think this is rudeness. If you need anything, ask and you shall find that it is no issue at all. Eg. Carrying bags etc.
We would love to return here when the weather is better so we can get in the water :)
