Family of 5 staying 7 nights January 2014.
Stayed in Coral Reef interconnecting rooms right opposite pool - with pool safety fencing (except neighbours left unlatched - and they were the ones with little kids!) Rooms were very clean and very spacious, beds big and pretty comfy - except pillows were too lumpy for me ! Rooms serviced daily to high standard.
The resort grounds are very well maintained each day. I watched the sunrise most mornings and the gardeners were hard at work at this time - same days kids were swimming at 6.30am!
Kids did the ray feeding ($38each) which they loved - the Living Reef which runs around the resort is fantastic as are the marine staff. We also did Parasailing - ($130 tandem) which was so much fun ! Beware - most of the activities incur a cost - bingo each day @ $10 each - so it is very expensive with older kids who want to do everything !
The non-motorised sports are free and the guys who run the Beach Hut activities are really friendly and helpful. Amazing Race was lots of fun as was snorkelling off Lovers Cove - so many fish - and stingers on our last day due to NE winds.
Food & Drinks - very expensive - which annoyed me! Bar drinks - expensive and hospitality staff were not very friendly! The managers who ran the Waterfalls and the Fishbowl were the exception however - very helpful eventhough they were very busy. The breaky buffet was good each day - kids loved it - lots of variety. We enjoyed the Roast Carvery but were disappointed with the Seafood Buffet. Fishbowl food was good, but bakery service and food very underpar for a Resort.
It really is a lovely place to visit and we had a great and relaxing time. The kids had a ball! The pools are lovely and the swim-up bar was good too. Would return for a few days only due to the expense of a week long stay.
