We spent a week at the resort on a mother and daughter trip. We had a problem with the bathroom in our room but it was dealt with promptly and professionally by Kimberly who is an absolute asset to the company. All the staff are lovely, the food was great ( particularly breakfast!) and we had a very relaxing break!...

this accommodation was 4 star, but to get to town you had to catch a taxi and this worked out quit expensive in the long run. All restaurants were in town except for eating in hotel. This hotel had a golf course attached to it, but did not see anyone playing. The pool was great for kids and happy hour...

Good Morning jillybean Thank you for your review. The close proximity of the resort to the town centre certainly makes it easy to take advantage of the many good restaurants around town.

I was very pleasantly surprised and thought this was a lovely resort. Our room was new, modern and had everything we needed and a lovely outlook. Staff were extremely helpful and just lovely. I wasn't travelling with children but it looked like it was very well set up for them.

Was there late August and it was a very nice resort. Lovely small beach overlooking a lagoon with plenty of shady places to hang out. The rooms were ok, but the standard one I had only had a very small and narrow balcony, so if you want a room with a balcony you can sit down on, then you need...
