The pool area facing the beach , in polinisian style it's gorgeous. You will spend most of your time for sure around there. By night , the low light recquired for the turtles procreation allows you to see a million stars, very romantic.
The hotel starts to feel the age, the rooms need new televisions and furniture , the bathroom ceiling new painting and we could use more acoustic protection, since through the walls you can hear everithing that happens in your neighboor, wich can be a little bit stressfull if you have a light sleep.
The buffet food it's above average , and it's my personal opnion that it's possible improve with a little bit more of imagination. You can have dinner in other restaurants a few times , but booking it's very burocratic. It's a shame because those restaurants have enormous potential, and I would not mind to pay an extra fee to have my meals every night on then, but it's not possible by the resort policy.
But what really disapoint it's the low quality of the service and the amateur staff.
Bell boys careless, the concierge impatient, , the employes at the buffets are unfriendly and sometimes rude.
The reception could be more efficient in the briefing time, in the check in, and a warm reception it's the key to make us , the guests , satisfied. You know what people say about the first impression!
Nevertheless , you may enjoy a nice staying, but keep in mind, for this kind of service , the value it's overpriced, and a feel miles away you have similar resorts, equaly beautifull, some of them several years "younger", with better food and similar prices.
