Due to our already reviewed Jacaranda Beach Resort end of season closure on 17 April, we took the short walk through the arch which separates the two resorts and checked into Room 1, on the other side of the wall. The long story is that the two were originally one.... The architecture and fittings bear testimony to this.
The feel is very different though. Better upkeep, fresh whites and blues and homely attentive staff sets Jumbo apart. The resort is markedly smaller, adding to the focused, personal nature of the service. All members of staff from GM Claudio to the garden staff are somehow accessible. Jambo Jumbo! How can I assist? Can I help you carry? This is how your package works...clearly stated.
All in all a nice finish to our long weekend break.
One small request, extend wifi to the rooms near the beach. We were in Room 1 closest to the beach and pool. 10 metres closer to the common area, wifi was strong. Being out of touch is probably a benefit, but I am an information junkie.
