What Are The Reviewers Complaining About ????
Just got back from a 9 day stay at this great place. Ive read other negative reviews on here and I don't know what they're on about ... truly. The staff can't do enough for you ... from asking for a laundry bag ... which got sent direct to our room, to the restaurant staff carrying your plate to the table for you, to management who make sure all is ok every day and personally meets and greets and farewells you to the room staff who you see hovering just outside and they come up asking if you want more towels. The rooms are cleaned twice a day. Beautiful sheet art on the beds. No its not 5 star but the people make it 5 star. The rooms are large and clean. The people are fantastic. Treat them like you want to be treated and they treat you like absolute royalty. Half of the staff have wives and children left back on other islands and or countries its amazing. The resort has a fantastic spa and the two ladies there will make you feel like a million dollars! My husband did an assisted 12m dive and the resident instructor is caring and professional. The one restaurant has a multitude of selections every day for all meals. It has a rotating menu which runs 7 days and special bbq and fish nights along with pasta and an array of salads and soups. The chefs are friendly and approachable and again the wait staff will make sure your satisfied. We can't say enough of the island ... the snorkeling and underwater life is at your front door !! We will be back!
