June 14 - 28 2013. We had a superior beachfront room. I cannot recommend this highly enough. We stepped straight onto the sand one way or out into the beautiful grounds the other way. The sea was just a few metres away.
It was our 28th wedding anniversary and we received complementary champagne and flowers -lovely!
The bay was beautiful, the resort was never crowded.
The staff were attentive without ever being intrusive. We enjoyed laughing and chatting with them.
The overall manager, Chris, and his team were fab..
I cannot fault the food! A la carte at every meal - wonderful choice.
Our favourite restaurant was the Gaugin at the end of the beach in individual cabana type tables.
We also loved the Seagrape.
Drinks were of high quality and readily available.
We went on the Wadadli Cats Catamaran round the island trip which was fantastic.
We met a wonderful taxi driver called Melrose who became our unofficial tour guide.
The air con was always on and always cool.
We were fortunate enough to have the opportunity to see a six foot leatherback turtle laying eggs on the beach at 2am courtesy of the staff who called us!
This was a relaxing and fun holiday in a stunning location.
i find it very difficult to understand how some people who were there at the same time could have been unhappy.
Would definitely return as would the friends we went with.
By the way the watersports and walking trip were also great.
