A sign on the road indicated it was a 5 star resort and for the price, you would expect it to be. However, apart from the amazing views and fairly good accommodation, there were a few things they didn't get quite right… reception staff were a bit off hand, single-ply toilet paper (in a 5 star resort - really??) worn bathroom towels and threadbare beach towels, air conditioning unit in the studio apartment that wasn't quite powerful enough and not able to be directed over the bed (difficult to sleep). The restaurant menu was average, and the execution a bit disappointing. Also, i would have expected free wifi, at least in restaurant area if not rooms.
On the plus side, the restaurant and bar staff were lovely, the pool nice and big and the snorkelling trip fabulous. Also big tick for the kokoda, which was delicious! Lovely area down by the beach with hammocks and lounges (a little worn), though with an un-manned dive shop, they missed out on some extra revenue as we would have hired snorkels our third day.
In summary, we had a lovely weekend, but probably won't go back for the price, shame because its a nice set up.
