we stayed here at the end of april-may for 10 nights with some friends, our adventure started off with our speed boat trip (which turned out to be the supply boat/dingy with outboard motor) this trip was from Vuda Point Marina and we caught the boat at 9pm - its very dark on a boat so small, this was something the resort offers in there brochure & Website. It was great waking up on the island the next day all the traveling done, we had a beach front bure facing the south side of the island. (which was the best side of the island - weather wise- for when it rains & wind we were sheltered).
We had prob with hot water - it was either boiling hot or freezing cold, our friends had trouble with their toilet not flushing, it took 2 days to get the hot water fixed, but the toilet was an ongoing prob. Food was average - over cooked and dry this was for buffet and al acarte - but we found that they had a Flambe room where the food was cooked in front of you - fresh produce - it cost extra $24 p.p. on top of your meal plan - but well worth it - we ate in here 3 times.
As for the resort facilities they need attention the resort looks very tired and run down.
Negatiives: Activity board has daily plan, but not always do the activities take place - ie they had putt putt golf comp. on the board no one ever turned up to do it and when we mentioned it to reception they just ignored us, also spa demo never happened or Flambe demo.
You have to pay for non motorized equipment (but this was advertised as free)
Great new infinity pool but very old looking deck chairs and cushions (that are left out each night in the weather) same on beach they have mats that are all torn full of water from the rain. The deck around the pool area needs work and the 2 kids pools also need attention (never saw anyone clean the pools or test the water). Also spoke to some guest who had bed bug issues (we didn't)but there may be some other types of mites around.
Positives: Good weather, snorkeling great - just off the beach area (also take a snorkeling trip 2hr this is great), night time band singing and dancing - staff also do a singalong (the seagull song is great entertainment each night done by staff and guest)
there are some friendly and helpful staff willing to what ever they can to make your stay enjoyable - mention Mary, Chef Kelly, Alita, Tom & Able in the bar just to mention a few.
Overall the resort is in a great location, great surroundings but management need to updated the tired rooms, common areas and facilities by just adding a bit more attention to detail, even though this is 3 .5 star resort it really should be 2.5-3, as i would prob put Plantation Island before Treasure. (sometimes what you see in brochure is not what you always get) We did a day trip to Castaway & Malolo and they look more inviting (yes they may be a littler dearer). Also make sure you check your bill before leaving.
On a final note we had a great time with our friends and made our own fun, probably would not return to Treasure unless some major work has been done to the facilities etc. Forgot to mention Senikas Spa is well worth the treatment you receive.
