The place is beautiful, we booked through air b n b for 5 nights. There are plenty of well light pools which you can use in the evening and the reception staff are kind and helpful. The location is quiet however about 20-25 mins walk to the nearest row of local conveniences or around 40-50 walk into the centre of...

We stayed in 2 bedroom self contained apartment which was good quality and spacious. Full size fridge, good cooking facilities inc oven, note they are self contained so cooking utensils and cuttlery are provided but you need to provide everything else (inc toilet paper, garbage bags, pool towels etc..) Resort featured several different swimming pools which we all enjoyed and...

Where to start? We were first here around two years ago - on our first walk around we noticed that the gym was closed due to repairs. It's still closed. This is not a place you would call quiet and relaxing. The maintenance staff LOVE their leaf blowers and spend a lot of the day walking around doing just that...

I have stayed here 4 times previously but not for 9 years. It used to be a pristine immaculate resort but it's not been maintained well & is starting to look a little tatty around the edges. The prices being charged though are still top wack. Previously I wouldn't have hesitated to give it a 5 & to be honest...

The apartments were very clean and well furnished. The views were good and the pools were excellent. The only complaint was that the main air con wasn't working properly, but the ones in the bedrooms were great. Nice place, definitely stay here again.

We rented a 2 bed apartment and the upside was that it was quite spacious with a secure parking space provided. However the aprtment was rather tired looking and in need of upgrade due to a lot of lack of care and attention. No wi-fi in apartments so need to go to reception to plan your day which is very...

The room and facilities were good for a family. The gym was decent and pools were an absolute hit for the kids travelling with us! The staff provide great information for local attractions for those unsure. Sure, there are bugs but you're in the tropics, it's unavoidable at a resort. Definitely returning in future.

A lovely place for a short stay, nice, clean well equipped apartments, Great swimming pools and BBQ facilities, the ground staff are friendly and helpful. However, the midges are really bad, the road and the accompanying speed humps are noisy. Our main problem came when we vacated our long term rental, they made it very difficult to get our bond...
