Travelled here with my husband and 1 year old. Stayed in one bedroom garden view suite on the second floor. Loved this resort. Grounds and pool area are wonderful and the tropical feel and the up keep of the grounds are exceptional. When compared to the other resorts in the area this wins hands down.
Stand out Positives
Babies pool is a massive plus and it is separate from the toddlers and adults pool so that you don't get other kids splashing around scaring the babies. My one year old doesn't walk but happily crawled around in this pool and had a great time. The bottom of the pool seems like it has just been resurfaced and is very rough so he was a little uncomfortable kneeling in it but he survived. Lots of pool space for everyone. We didn't use the swim up bar and I know people complained about kids being up there. But it is a family resort so kids are a all over the place. It is just part of the package. Didn't use the adult pool but I found I didn't need to. It wouldn't be that quiet anyway as it just has a few bushes separating it from the main pool.
Rooms are spacious and clean. Is very child friendly and had lots of room for him to crawl about. Bed is massive and very comfy. Kitchen comes equipped with microwave, toaster and plates and cutlery and all the things you expect with an apartment style room. Bathroom has a big bath and double basins.
Nanny service - whilst my son couldn't go in the kids club we used the nanny service a few times and even though my son is hard work he loved our nanny. After a really grumpy day she had him giggling within 5mins of arriving. If you need someone that is genuinely lovely Ima was our nanny. She would take him down to the kids club to keep him distracted and would take him to the torch lighting activity in the evening.
Location to other resorts is really handy. All have different shops and restaurants you can try out and there is a walkway connecting them all.
Stand out negatives
The food was a big stand out for me. Breakfast was average at best. Food just seemed overcooked and old. Whilst we ate here every morning it was only because it came as part of the room rate. Also we didn't realise that when they come around and ask if you want a coffee and you say yes that it is charged to your room. We paid 16fJ for two disgusting undrinkable coffees. So be warned. Cocktails are also average. We only ordered them during happy hour. We also got takeaway a few times from blu and portion sizes were very poor compared to eating in. I wasn't surprised about the food as I had seen this in previous reviews but I was surprised by how not up to par it was at times. It's not the worst I have had but when you are paying AU prices for things you want to see it reflected in the food.
Beach is very average but that isn't the hotels doing! But don't come here if you want an amazing beach to swim or snorkel from easily. The pool made up for it though.
All in all we had a wonderful trip and the service was fantastic from everyone. We would def come here again and would recommend to others. Especially those with young kids.
