After a bad holiday experience at Christmas we really needed somewhere to restore our faith in tour operators and hotels - without a shadow of doubt we found it here! We arrived on 28 May to the most spectacular storm I have ever seen and even though we were soaking wet there's something fun about warm rain.
We had a beach villa (151) on the north side of the island which we were more than happy with; and in our opinion this was the better side of the island but everyone is different. Snorkelling was great and we got some great underwater shots of the coral and fish. Late afternoon the fruit bats start flying over the Boashi pool and they're a beautiful sight.
As far the hotel and staff are concerned there isnt a single criticism but as with all holidays there are some staff you talk to more than others - Francis in the Boashi Bar is a wonderful young man, extremely good with the children and refreshes your drinks immediately. Robin - he's the bar boss - lovely man who works very long hours - as they all do - but always takes the time to have a chat.
We wouldnt go again at this time of year because of the season however we will be going back without a shadow of a doubt within the next 2 years which is something we have never done before.
Very happy memories of a fabulous holiday which we will treasure.
