First time here and wont be the last. All staff very attentive and helpful. Room was more than adequate and had a view over the lagoon. I used HG reward points. The food was good, not cheap though. A value resort .

Amazing location. Excellent staff. So much free entertainment for adults and kids. Very kid friendly. Everything was impressively clean and well presented. We witnessed the pool water being checked several times during our week stay which is very comforting that they take health seriously. Staff were also constantly cleaning meal areas. Our "garden view" room was small with the view...
