    Fabulous

    Food, staff, swimming pool, adventure zone (for kids)

    The bath cabinet drain got blocked. Staff solved, but it could be avoided with some preventive cares.

    Very good

    Got upgraded to a seafacing room with nice decor. Breakfast was great and of good value. Food at Sigi's Cafe was also very presentable and delicious, nice environment.

    Vendors on recreational activities were too close to the private area of the Hotel; thus relaxation at lawn was interrupted by their smoking and communications with possible customers and among themselves.

    Very good

    The best family resort. Love the adventure zone and kids activities that allows parents to have a little bit of rest while the kids are having fun at the same time. Brilliant idea!

    The continuos noise from the jet skis and the foul smell of petrol destroys the pleasure of a tropical beach making it impossible to relax and dangerous for children to be by the beach. I couldnt even rest while doing my reflexology bcos of the foul petrol smell which is bad and could cause cancer. It's ashame..with a beautiful beach like that.

    Very good

    Good staff, good location, family atmospher, beautiful gardens, children friendly swiming pool,

    Less privacy in balcony, relatively small rooms for families with prams etc.., personnel allowed people to swim with their cloths on in the children swiming pool.

    Folllow-up of the hotel management on the complaints. GM made some time available to talk. If you are with children >3 yrs the hotel would be a nice option.

    Superb

    services and comfort

    i booked for hillview room but i found it street view not hill!!!!!! the rooms are so tight, and the price was too high

  • 7.4
    Very good

    The resort was relaxing and the staff were friendly. Great for families with kids club and an adventure zone. Loved the cooking lessons and fruit carving.

    We were on a non smoking floor, and guests were allowed to smoke on their balconies...which resulted in smoke annoying us on our balcony. Slippers are used thongs, which is unhygenic and not a four star hotel experience. Would have liked herbal tea at the breakfast buffet. We left at 6am, and our breakfast boxes were poor. The bottom fell out of them and the food was not great.

    Very good

    I like the design for this hotel. Also it has a lot great swimming pools.

    yes, There are some Indian staffs not respectful especially in reception and restaurant.Although I have booked this hotel with package which include one way transfer to air port, one night dinner, and 4 hours children’s adventure, they told me there is nothing in the system about this your package.

    Superb

    The hotel provides a wide range of activities, is fantastic for kids and is very well designed and laid out to maximise the use of the wide sea frontage.

    Very good

    Charm and comfort, Relaxing ambience, Good connectivity to dining spots and streetside shopping, Good spread of services and amenities

    Security was rather lax, Had the feeling that non-guests can access hotel facilities easily, overcrowded during my stay, checking in was quite slow probably due to high volume
