Such a stunning location. Our stay was good. Negatives were that they seem to be short staffed, had to wait in queues a few times & our room didn’t get serviced over 4 nights which was unusual.

We have just spent 4 nights here and were concerned after recent reviews, but feel some of them are really harsh. We had a great time. The resort is beautiful. Our room wasn’t ready when we arrived at 1.45 ish. We didn’t get in until around 3.45, which is annoying. We were given some drink vouchers as a token but feel they should have your room ready for the 2pm check in time, considering the price you pay daily for less than a 24 hour period. The room was lovely. We requested a ground floor, which had a spacious outside area and a large grassed area out the front. Housekeeping is basic each day and often late in the afternoon. It seems after reopening due to COVID restrictions, they are short staffed, but the staff that are there are working sooo hard. You see the same staff all over the resort throughout the day. They genuinely seem to be doing the best they can and trying to keep a smile on their faces. We saw some of the guests being so rude to them and they just had to take it in their stride and keep going. We found them all to be friendly and accommodating. We ate at Inkstone every night and had a couple of takeaway lunches. The food was amazing! We found breakfast adequate. It was very much the same each day, and agree with other guests in that it was often cold. They have to serve you your food which obviously slows down the process which could account for this. We will definitely return and hope more guests show some understanding and respect towards the staff.

Staff were great, really great, but half of the island was not open yet and there was no listing for guests on what activities were on each day like they used to have. Also, less activities that you can book. Not even the outdoor cinema is running. Rooms spotless, buffet breakfast is fantastic along with the restaurants. With the other shops not being open, you are now really restricted in eating. eg no bakery anymore.
