Impressive. Service was hit and miss, although Anniko was terrific. Clean room. Well looked after. Service at all restaurants were slow and poor, especially the lunch restaurant by the pool. Food...

The Slate, Indigo Pearl exceeded all expectations of a 5 Star Resort. The resort is large and well occupied as you notice the guests at breakfast but you still feel like you have the place to yourself. We stayed in one of the Pearl Bed Suites that are considered standard rooms but they were very spacious and very beautiful with...

Fantastic hotel, we had a pool suite which was perfect. Great location, good food and lovely helpful staff.

The hotel were also very...

Me and my girlfriend took an 9 night stay at the Indigo Pearl (now renamed The Slate) and it was by far the best holiday experience of our lives. The hotel is huge, but more like a community than a load of buildings that are close to one another, with several pools and restaurants within the complex. The rooms are...

Reading about name change one could imagine that this is a new renovated resort, well it is not at all. The resorts is in need of renovation. Staff is very friendly and helpful.

This hotel is spacious, we stayed in a premier room with a large balcony with bath which was luxurious. There are interesting sculptures and landscaped gardens. The breakfast was excellent. The choice of three pools suit every generation and the location is perfect but maybe not for shoppers. Don't forget the insect repellent as there are still water pools which...

Industrial chic, quirky, large but not crowded, excellent swimming pools, great food and drinks. We had such a good time at this hotel even though the weather was overcast. The room had a bath, table and chairs and bed on the balcony so we could chill under a canopy while it rained. The bed was amazing, like sleeping on a...
