Rooms were very clean and facilities very nice in good condition. Customer service missing sometimes in the bars, pools or restaurants. For example, we asked them to restock pool towels 5 times in one day and it still never happened. Overall highly recommended!

Most spectacular service, perfect relaxing couples getaway. This is not a resort for people looking to have evening entertainment but if you're seeking relaxation & to enjoy each others company then this is certainly the place to find it. We were overwhelmed by the service & hospitality of every staff member...nothing is too much trouble & they go the extra mile every time...our best holiday experience 😊

Excellent hotel with very kind and helpful staff
We were particularly impressed with the staff from the moment we landed at Gan airport. It was clear that they wanted to make our visit special and they succeeded! We were celebrating our 30 wedding anniversary while staying there and they arranged for us to dine outside under the stars and decorated our dinner table with extra fresh flowers. They also, very unexpectedly produced a specially made wedding anniversary cake at the end of dinner and when we returned to our room they had decorated it too with flowers and a palm leaf written wedding anniversary message on the bed! It was so thoughtful and very touching and it was clear that they delighted in seeing their guests happy and having a good experience. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble. The beaches was beautiful clean and the buggy drivers always helpful and willing to drive you wherever you wanted to go on the island. The food was excellent and there was plenty of choice of meals. I would highly recommend this hotel.
