We were somewhat anxious about our stay having read some of the reviews on Trip Advisor. The rooms we were initially offered were not of the standard we had expected but we were quickly offered alternative rooms by the management and these rooms were lovely.
The food was always fresh with lots of variety and the management and staff throughout the hotel were exceptionally helpful and friendly throughout our stay. Yes, there were lots of Russians staying and they wasted lots of food in the dining room by having 'eyes bigger than their tummies' when it came to helping themselves at the buffet but they did not in any way detract from our enjoyment.
The snorkelling off the beach was excellent although the management should provide signs pointing out that guests should not stand on the coral reef which we saw several people do - in order to protect the coral of course but also guests could receive some nasty injuries depending what coral/creature they stand on. The sun shone on most days throughout our ten night stay but the winds were really strong on occasions - not really warm enough to sit out in the evenings without jumpers etc.
The resort probably equates to 3 star rating in the UK but the magical location on the reef and the wonderfully friendly and helpful staff make us want to return again next Winter.
