The property is the perfect place for a magical sunset wedding which is why I was there. Their banquets and events departments are very well organised and the food at every wedding event was scrumptious and there was an amazing variety. Unfortunately the food in the restaurants and room service were ok and very overpriced for what they were. The service wasn't up t the standard of such a hotel but it was not for lack of effort- it may have been a language barrier. Though slow the staff was always friendly and smiling. The size of the property and beautiful locations like the ROck Bar and the wedding ceremony against the Indian Ocean sunset were breath taking and visions I'll never forget. They have hidden away spots too that were peaceful. Considering the wedding guests were so many and that the hotel seemed very occupied the rooms and common areas were spread out enough that one didn't bump into too many people if one didn't want to.
Don't bother upgrading to a Club room for it's perks as the meals there are far from satisfying and the quality of the free alcoholic drinks sub standad. The freshly squeezed juices are delicious and the tea time snack good.
The Rock Bar at night is worth checking out even if you're not staying here.
I'm sure for a hotel of this calibre one would find much better value for money elsewhere or even a great deal at a budget place if the beach and water sports are your thing. It's beaches, views and location are one of a kind though so if you're not as fussy as I am I would suggest giving it a try.
