It needs a pool
Karl, 6-night romance trip
Verified Expedia guest review

6/10 Good

Very average.
The selling point is the beach which is second to non. A few issues there: the breakfast is well below average with limited choices and boring not even eggs is included; coffee is not good at all. The paid wifi connection is a joke, I had to re-connect many times in my room and that applies to all the guests we came across. No room make up on Sunday without letting us know and I had to take my rubbish bins out myself. I won’t recommend this hotel to my friends.

Fabulous service and location
We were upgraded to Moana Sands Beachfront Villas even though we booked at the hotel. Loved the location right across the road from Wigmores. Amazing staff, lovely pool and fantastic snorkeling on the lagoon out front. Our accommodation was large and very comfortable with a fan and air conditioning. And they were great to deal with directly. Lovely large breakfasts of fresh fruits, yoghurt, cereal and toast and spreads to set you up for the day.

I stayed at the Lagoon property, which is only a couple of years old. The Beach front property, which was my original reservation, is still undergoing renovations. Since that fact was not mentioned on the website when I made the reservation they upgraded me to their Lagoon property.
