8/10 Very good

The room was very spacious with air con. It had a great sized deck with a table and daybeds. Also an out door shower. The only negative was we had no hot water and asked twice for it to be fixed but it never happened. We did however receive a credit so happy with that.

10/10 Exceptional

Wonderful property, with easy access to the beach, to the pools, very tidy and the staff is just so exceptional and accomodating. The restaurant is top quality too and the Island special dinner is just amazing, both in terms of food served and show. The only point where there is still a bit of improvement is the pace of serving in the restaurant, bringing all at once after waiting sometimes for a while. It would be nice, for example, to have the cocktails before the mains (with maybe some coconut chips or other snacks) rather than at the same time.
