As part of my honeymoon, my wife and I stayed 7 nights at Shantara in January 2014. The resort was nice, the room was large with modern decor, we had a separate bedroom, the living room consisted of a couch, kitchen, and dinning table. The swimming pools were a little on the small side but worked fine during the time we were there. Complaint was that in the afternoon the building is blocking the sun for the majority of the pool.
Overall it was a good value, we paid for 5 nights and got 7 nights included. We opted for a 1 bedroom swim out room, which was a nice feature to have and worth the extra money. You can go out of your room and can immediately jump into the pool from your outdoor patio, which had a table and chairs, and lounger. There also was a washing machine just outside the room that was free of charge and made doing laundry convenient. The resort is only a 5 min walk to 4 Mile Beach and 8-10 min walk to the center of town for food/bars/shops. The room was fully stocked with all dinning essentials as well.
The bathroom had a little mold on the caulking in the shower - not an issue just an observation. The bathroom set up was a little funky, the sink was outside the bathroom.
Overall it was a pleasant stay and good value.More
