I had read a few reviews before I went and was a little concerned about some of the complaints people had, but I have to say after a 7 night stay, it was a great place to stay and as a couple we were very pleased.
As it was off season it was clear that the place was not full, which was very pleasent as it meant that space around the pool was easy to find and noise from other guests was at a minimum. At arrival we were greated by some staff singing and playing guitar. We found our room was upgraded from a garden veiw room to a sea veiw room at no extra cost. The room was always well clean and the staff were very plesant, meeting all our needs.
The breakfast buffet was included in our package and was a great way to start the day (we ate alot of pastries during our stay). Eating a large breakfast meant we didn't need a lunch and instead we indulged in snacks by the pool with a cocktail.
We did feel the prices at the hotel for food were expensive, but quality was high. We choose to eat at the Port for dinner most nights, and enjoyed the live entertainment that most places at the Port provided. Overall we really enjoyed our stay.
As the beach is reclaimed land, it was grey and the sea water not too appealing for swimming, so I would recommend taking a boat trip to one of the islands for the day to experience the white beaches and snorkling. We took the captain cook day cruise to mystery island and had a ball.
