Our main purpose for this type of holiday is for a good beach, good swimming, quality clean room in a good location and this is what we got.
The grounds were immaculate and even though we only used one pool a few times, they were fabulous. We managed to do some snorkelling which was quite good from the beach. As many people have already said, the dolphin trip is a must and definitley a highlight, which we booked directly with The Boat House next to the Beach Restaurant.
The staff were friendly, the food was very good with an excellent choice, the Thai restaurant was excellent, you need to pre book your table as the restaurant is very popluar, we ate there three times and thoroughly enjoyed it.
We had some lovely long walks along the beach, past the new Regis Hotel and keep walking, round the bay until you see hardly anyone with a spectacular view of the mountains. It usually took us just less than 2 hours (there and back) so take a bottle of water and a hat if its hot. You will also need beach shoes as it can be a bit rough under foot, and I also wore my swim shoes in the sea which I would recommend.
We arrived at the tail end of the cyclone Imelda so our first 4 days were cloud and some rain, but still warm and once the sun came out it was glorious.
There were a lot of children, even though it was out of the school holidays, quite a few children of school age plus babies and toddlers, so ideal of families.
One negative for me personally, I did not like the cats that wandered around the restaurant area begging for food - never had anything like this before from our many visits to 5* hotels around the world.
Having said that, we felt we were in the best location on the island and its also worth noting you should do the south island inland trip to see the natural beauty of the interior.
