We stayed here last week for 2 weeks in one of the club rooms.
First impressions were good, the location is amazing, the resort is peaceful and serene which made up for the clean but dated and slightly damp smelling room.
However as our stay progressed we found more and more irritations with the place and rapidly went off it!
The main problems came from the dining- you are required to book in advance and comply with a dress code which is fine, however to then wait repeatedly for 20 mins or so EVERY night to be seated is not acceptable. Waiter service was random- obviously some had done the course, others not! It was not uncommon to have drink poured on me by sloppy waitresses in a hurry or drinks not delivered at all! Breakfast, though plentiful was boring and repetative choices.
Reception staff also seemed disinterested, often talking to others whilst dealing with my query or walking off to do something else. Not great.
That said, water sports were great and very friendly as was the kids club but I won't be returning!
