Positive Reviews

Welcoming staff members

Guests report that the employees are helpful and have friendly attitudes. In many cases, guests say that the staff help get visits off to an even more superb start by offering room upgrades.

A beautiful setting

Travellers are delighted with the way many rooms overlook the lagoon, garden, or pool. They say that the views are exquisite, and the lovely scenery helps them unwind and forget about the stresses of everyday life for a while.

Appealing rooms

Reviewers mention that the accommodations are quite large and surpass their expectations in terms of spaciousness. Also, the units are well cleaned daily, and guests appreciate that.

Negative Reviews

Poor Wi-Fi service

Complaints about the Wi-Fi bring up how the signal is so weak that it is impossible to go online from the rooms and that connectivity is only an option from the public areas. Furthermore, guests say there is a cumbersome voucher system that requires repetitively getting codes from the reception desk in order to access Wi-Fi.

Not pedestrian-friendly

Travellers clarify that this is not an ideal property for people expecting to get around on foot. They say it's just a bit too far out of town for that, so having a car is essential.

The buffets need improvement

Comments from occupants indicate that the buffets fall short of expectations. They often get too crowded due to large tour groups, and guests say that staff members don't restock the food frequently enough or keep it hot. Plus, guests say they don't find the food appetising, and think it lacks consistency when they visit the buffets multiple times.
