Great service, beautiful setting, lots of nature, birds. Villa was amazing, and very private. Good coffee too! Very well looked after by the staff there. Son insists I put in that tennis courts surface is uneven.

Again a lovely, relaxing experience for the third time - each visit has netted a different experience even though participating in the same activities. Pristine, fresh exciting any time of the year. Staff are very client focussed.

Outdated accommodation doesn't match pictures online. Slight mould odour in our room, fabric couch was very old and musty. Room fridge was not cleaned out from previous tenants. Dining experience and staff service were excellent.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom villa and it was perfect for our family of 5. Lovely balcony and large living area. Easy access to the resort and pool. Staff were friendly and helpful. Kids were sad to leave.

Friendly, helpful staff and all the amenities for a relaxing stay. We stayed in the hotel section and the rooms were quiet and private. The large spa bath in the bathroom was a bit dated and the shower above this could prove difficult for some.

A place to do a lot or a little. We relaxed by the pool, walked along the beach chasing the soldier crabs, restaurants were really nice. Wine and cheese platter was great. Our room was clean and comfortable apart from a few spider webs in the bathroom. Can't wait to return.

We had a fantastic stay and cant fault the service or ammenities! Bed was soft, pool glorious and access to the amazing island hot spots great.

Cockroaches were running riot in our room. We just feel that the food side of the resort was very disappointing with the pricing. It's all good to have high end prices but was looking forward to more pub pricing especially at sand bar. Not the case though. No snack foods that were available on request. Was told they were not...

Dear leanneh Thank you for posting a review. Please accept our sincere apologies that some aspects of your stay on this occasion failed to meet expectations. Being located within a sub-tropical climate insects form a part of this natural ecosystem and unfortunately at times make their way indoors to escape the weather.

Loved living in the middle of the bush land where everything seemed to be carefully arranged to have the least amount of impact on the natural environment, and yet still having the luxury of a resort.
