This is an outstanding beach resort. The grounds and facilities are magnificent. The meals prepared by the chef, Samir and served by the ever pleasant Rodger were as good as any where in the world. Sadly, four days was not enough.

Lovely rooms , well stocked bathrooms. Food was good - albeit a little odd combinations at times (clotted cream infused with mint, steamed broccoli with pineapple and mango...
