Great family holiday overall. A few things that weren’t so great… room only got made up once for a 4 night stay which I thought was pretty ordinary. The buffet breakfast was continually running out of food due to presumably a lack of staff or management. Minor things in the grand scheme of things but both are easily fixed for improvement of guest experience.

The place is beautiful and the weather is just perfect. The service is very limited - no water bottles in the room, no good coffee and everything is a bit pricy.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities
Overall a good stay. Staff were friendly although island was no where near capacity. Some other dining options would be good, very limited for kids/families and expensive. Would love to see south end back to its former glory. That was the ‘fun’ part of the island.

5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The resort has recently been renovated so really looks good. We tried to book online for the dinner at Infinity and could only get a 5pm sitting 😟however when we arrived on the island we’re told we could come at any time. The booking app should be fixed. The food however was absolutely fabulous! Buffet breakfast was good variety … except that replenishment was a bit slow. Loved the “no carpets”in the rooms. Room and bathroom really spacious. Only complaint that there was long dark hair in a number of places in the bathroom - urgh.
