Wasnt that great...went after peak season, but still packed. Beaches, good. We had a beachfront family bure and pretty much every thing that could break did, including the window louvres, drawers, fridge and toilet. This resort is VERY tired. F&B was very average. Meal plan really restricted you. Wouldn't recommend.
The activites were very average; marine activities were a shambles, and the less said about the kids club the better. We spoke to many guests who had come from other resorts, including Castaway, Outrigger and ShangriLa and they all very shocked at how down market the place was. It was full of very budget concious Kiwis (who the hell brings an esky /icebox into a restaurant on holidays for crying out loud!?!)
The staff ranged from fantastic, to disinterested. The kids had a great time, but mind you they had just as good a time at the Raffles Gateway swimming pool on the way over and back! It was pretty much a production line, budget resort which desperately needs a few million pumped into it. Next time, probably spend the extra and go to Castaway, or try twice the holiday at half the price in Bali..
