Can't really add much to what everyone else has said - we enjoyed our 3 nights at Akama, despite the poor weather and the fact that we didn't manage to try the pool or the BBQ facility. We were pretty gob-smacked when we first walked into our apartment - it was HUGE, with enormous folding doors open onto the large...
