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.
