Great rainforest themed resort. We had our Christmas and New year here. Rooms were big and clean. Good and friendly service. Kids loved the mocktails at the bars. The beachfront area was the best on this beach, big lawn with some trees to give shade if needed. The New year's eve dinner and party was memorable. Food at the restaurant was ok, we had better at nearby beach restaurants. Breakfast buffet was great and varied enough each morning. We will probably visit this resort again.

The resort and grounds were very elegant with extensive gardens and water features. Our suite was located far away from the hotel lobby and close to the main swimming pool at the beach area. The room was very spacious and modern with many amenities for a comfortable stay. The bathroom was also quite elegant and large with an enclosed glass wall shower and bath tub. A fine restaurant on the hotel grounds was only a short walk from our room. Many fine foods at reasonable prices. We stayed 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our experience ! However, I was quite surprised that the bathroom toilet did not have a sprayer for cleaning.

The resort is located on the beach with a lot of trees. The resort promote sustainable environment while to do several "green" activities, especially for wildlifes. The resort is big and several low-rised buildings and 4 swiming pools and 2 large waterfalls. We stay at the nature wing near waterfall. The room is comfy with wood floor and good bed. All staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast is good. All other meals are at reasonable price and big portion. It's seems to be good family hotels with activities for kids with "Green" activities, kids pool with slider and large playground.
