It's a long way to get here(from the UK!) but it's worth it. The resort is just like the pictures. Beautiful rooms and facilities. Staff very friendly. Food great. Only downside is the cost of drinks etc and the service charge and tax. $9 for an orange juice and $7 for a small coke. This would be the only thing...

Paradise in every way , well worth the extra hour long internal flight. Staff couldn't do enough to make holiday special. Choice of food great, but if you weren't happy about what was on offer, the chefs would be happy to make something you would like. Great house reef teeming with ocean life, while Dive team were more than happy...

Service was excellent and so was our 2 bedroom beach pool villa. We would have appreciated a couple of more restaurants. Service in The Dining Room was occasionally poor. It took too long to get coffee at breakfast and drinks at lunch/dinner.
