We stayed for 5 nights at the Resort, with full board and 2 snorkeling excursions a day, booked directly from the Hotel website. It has been an extremely positive experience. The resort is ideal for families, it caters mainly European (80% Italians, then French and Spanish) and Japanese customers. The location is very good, in the best part of the beach, it's calm and far from the mad crowd of Chinese mass tourism. The food is good, either the buffet or the menù à la carte. We ate there all the time and we had no issues at all. The room was in one the little houses in front of the swimming pool. Very clean and with all comfort, except tv (but in such a beautiful place, there is no need for a tv!). Beware of monkeys and small squirrels!
Everything is extremely clean and very well kept, the staff is professional and nice. We enjoyed a lot the snorkeling trips by the diving centre: the coral is in quite good conditions and there are lots of tropical fishes, sharks and turtles. I would like to thank the two young and talented photographers (Kai & Joe) that took lots of pictures of us snorkeling! For those who don't want to venture on a boat: there is a cute small reef just around the corner of the Hotel, with baby sharks and lots of small Nemos fishes.
The only negative note is the low number of sunbeds and sun umbrellas compared to the number of customers: not enough expecially if the majority are groups of Italians, with the bad habit of waking up at dawn to occupy all the chairs with their stuff and then show up after 10 to claim their chair and sun umbrella! So please do something about it!
