I want to start by saying that I did my research on this place and read a ton of reviews of what seemed like whiny westerners complaining about a few bug bites. Having stayed there I can now speak truthfully about the place and would have to agree. If you stay here you will get bit, a lot! However, if you stay in a forest near the sea anywhere in the world (good luck finding that set up) you will also get bit. It's tropical, expect it.
That said, this place blew my and my girlfriends mind! On check in we were upgraded to a villa and the place had more rooms than my house. The rooms are incredible (again expect some wildlife living in there with you) and very we'll maintained. It's very hard to describe just how picturesque and almost unreal this resort is.
As for getting around the resort there is some walking however the hotel have a free 4 x 4 shuttle service to the front desk up until 23:00. Additionally the hotel offer a taxi service into town for a subsidised price.
Overall, the word magical seems a little bit highbrow for this website, but it genuinely is. This resort offers you more than a standard hotel would, and then some. For the adventurers amongst you, you'll enjoy the experience of living amongst the wildlife and be taken aback by the views (especially the sunset). If your budget can stretch I strongly advise going for a villa as this will no doubt increase your experience here. It certainly did ours.
