Over rated. My daughter and I stayed in a studio room but it was facing the car park view was terrible. The couch had stain marks, the fridge stank like cheese had been left there for months. You could also tell they didn't move couches to vaccum under them because there were a couple of jaffers my daughter found while playing on the floor.
Pools were great though.
Entrance to the Resort is weird/awkward right next to where you board and disembark from the ferry. On arrival you don't even feel the excitement of getting to your hotel because it's just there at the Ferry's doorstop. I didn't like that.
Restaurant food was lovely on the night we ate there. Waitresses looked bored out of their brains and looked like they wish they were else where. Breakfast was boring... usual pastries, cereal, fruit, scrambled eggs, hash brown, chippolattos etc. Not an international breakfast buffet you'd expect from a resort. Nothing like the resorts where you have a chef on the other side, in case you want a fried egg made for you etc.
This resort was over rated. We like there for the pools but that was it. We went out to restaurants instead etc. Wouldn't stay there again.
