Great neat hotel on the end of the archipelago. While not the greatest beach location compared to competing properties it does hold its own when it comes to the property as well as value for money. Second time in 3 years and would definitely put it on my consideration list for the next time we're around.

I'll start off by saying that this is a really great hotel, but it could be much better for the high prices that they charge (especially since there are so many amazing resorts in the area).

The rooms are spacious and due to the way they are built in separated thatch villa style, there is not a sterile hotel atmosphere. Plenty of privacy and a lovely sitting area outside the room as well as on...

Room clean, quiet and private. Staff very professional and friendly. Safe, secure and peaceful environment. Atmosphere very refreshing. Proximity to Marine park, convenient for excursions. Beach, clean and very private. Ideal for couples and family. Wifi connectivity in the conference rooms need to be improved. Need to improve in variety of food offered. Need to have wifi in rooms.

We went to Temple Point beginning of May for a relaxing beach holiday and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is a big resort and when well booked for sure noisy and buzzing.
