I stayed at the resort for seven nights as an included component of an external program, so I have no idea how much the resort usually costs and whether or not it is good value. This could have prompted an 'Average' overall score, but as 'value for money' wasn't a factor I've increased my rating to 'Very Good'.
The resort itself is really nice and in a nice setting, approximately a 15-30 minute drive from the central city and shopping malls. The pool and surrounding area is lovely - lots of plants and trees, however it's in the shade all afternoon. So sun bathing by the pool is really only possible on a morning.
The room was nice and the bed huge and very comfortable. However the main window looked out onto the veranda and therefore I had to keep the blind closed all the time. This was the only source of natural light, apart from the bathroom, in which again I had to keep the blinds closed for obvious reasons! This left the room very dark. Otherwise it was clean and had all the mod cons as well as being spacious.
The food was good, although they got my order wrong a couple of times and I had to send food back. There is a great wifi signal. Mostly the staff are friendly but simple requests sometimes seemed difficult.
A couple of small things the resort can do - get 'do not disturb' signs for the rooms, at times these are necessary. Also offer an option (via a card in the room) to keep towels rather than having them changed every single day, in order to help the environment.
It's a nice place but I definitely wouldn't want to pay the earth to stay here.
