Would have been angry if I had paid full price.

We booked an impromptu holiday and got a fantastic 50% off deal at the resort. My partner, my 4yo and myself had a much needed break and the weather was great. The newly renovated buses were good and the 2bedrooms were a great size. Beach was good and coral OK.
My little boy loved the Kids Club which was a highlight for him. However if you are used to Australian standards of safety for kids, get someone else to drop them off. Open doors with kids and people free to wonder in and out is a disaster waiting to happen.
Highly recommend the Island hoping as it was a great view of the neighbourhood and the snorkelling was fantastic. Saying that, it did help us pick where we would go next as it wouldn't be at Plantation.
It is a good option if you are after a cheap and cheerful but I think the resort have forgotten their 3 star family audience. The resort used to include many things that now you need to pay extra for. The food is very average & expensive for what it is. I don't mind paying more as the ingredients are imported but the Muscat Cove options are much better value for money and super good.
The main part of the resort however very old and tired.
And the staff don't save it. Apart from Sue in the main restaurant and Grace at the bike shop, most of the staff really made no attempt to pretend they wanted to be there. You could tell they not only didn't like their job but actively hated it. We received the best service from staff at other resorts during our island hoping.
