The property was fine. It was listed as a five star resort but did not feel that way when there. The food was okay and overpriced for what we received. Additionally, almost all of the staff, aside from the person that checked us in, the wine pro and Winston at the front, seemed unhappy, irritated and didn't like to be bothered with questions or helping. On our second day, a beach attendant told me they don't have menus at the beach or serve food, but he could bring me a bag of chips and a "toasty." An hour later, another beach attendant walked by to ask if we would like to see a menu from the Jetty to order food / drinks? It just seemed underwhelming and unhappy. The property is beautiful and has potential to be great with happier, helpful people and better food.

Overall properly is very good. Food is very expensive. It is preferable to take full board package.

Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Sorry for giving this property a poor review but they had no working treadmills when I arrived. They told me to run outside - it's very hilly, hot and kinda unsafe I felt. Did not offer any other options -- and so had to opt to contacting Expedia to leave early. VERY VERY disappointing. I've never come across a hotel that advertises a gym not have a working treadmill, did not realize I had to confirm beforehand. Not only do I have an upcoming I'm training for but just in general, a hotel gym should have a treadmill.

Environment is low key, peaceful, and very quiet - a great place to just relax. Staff was extremely nice and helpful. Property is well run with thoughtful touches such as coolers of ice and bottled water by all the beach chairs (plenty of chairs and umbrellas by the way). However, meals were extremely expensive, so I recommend doing the inclusive food service. We definitely plan on returning.
