We visited this hotel which is not far from Southern Palms where we stay as one of the receptionists had moved there to work and wished to see us.
On entering, the hotel seemed very impressive and our friend showed us around two superior suites which looked marvelous with sunken bath and candles which are lit in the evening for one to have a bath.
There was a huge flat screen TV and the usual hairdryer, special smellies in silver caskets etc for the ladies, a desk for writing and huge bed with dressing room off, the usual tea and coffee making facilities and mini bar and safe.
My only complaint that these rooms did not have a sea view.
That is what I love at my second bedroom and home.
The pool was large and nearly reached reception and my husband liked the gym.
The spa seemed ok but I prefer the beauty salon at my own hotel.
There is still a lot of work going on.
One thing I did like was that there was plenty space around to hide away in the baking sun.
We sat for a drink at the pool bar next to the pool with the waterfall which looked good.
Drink prices were reasonable for a five star hotel.
On balance and not being biased I prefer my second home Southern Palms Beach Resort which we love and will always remain there.
However it was good to compare.
I do know however that one person remains un named pulled out of the running of the hotel when it was being built as things were just not quite right and I believe that there seems to be a few teething problems going on.
Asante sana for showing us around!!
