In the Room
I told Trevor the concierge that I was planning to propose. While we were having a spa treatment he went in and set up our room that blew us away and he helped make the proposal perfect.
The view and spectacular setting
Overpriced food, not best quality or presentation
breath taking views, close to the ocean, good service, 5 star treatment, many restaurants in the hotel to choose from
The housekeeping was excellent.The pool facilities and very helpful staff.
The resort dining areas were well constructed with friendly staff but the food experiences were mediocre.The outside menues were well constucted but the quality of food did not deliver that which was promised,(flattering to deceive).The room service was a disaster not one order was correct.Items not delivered,coffee with no milk,sandwiches with incorrect fillings.Returned items that were inedible(far too much salt) oily poor quality cheddar cheese in toasted sandwiches(recommend mozzarella).
Can recommend the experience to all. Perfect location with experience exceeding expectations.
Hotel did not receive the booking from bookings dot com. My Wife grandchild and I was chased out the door like dogs -- I had just traveled 600 kilometers. The hotel then phoned me on my mobile 20 minutes later and said they had found the booking and had to upgrade me to a suite at there expense. The rest of the easter weekend was great. Please communicate with the hotel as i was -- your site sent me two confirmation emails within half an hour of booking -- i presumed -- incorrectly -- that the hotel was also informed.
The newness of the place and tha size of the rooms
Superb place to relax, and catch up on lost family togetherness and time.
Location, Location. Location. We were traeted like kings!! Staff are very helpfull and friendly!
stunning location, gorgeous decor

Spa + Fitness Tenniscourts Soccer field Bar + Music Golf
Cleaniness of rooms Smell Maintenance Service
the location and whole set up is perfect
maintenace is behind, loose thing in shower, bad finisches in toilet, room was never cleaned without phoning cleaning service, carpet in restaurant poor. No mini bar in the room!? should be in a 5 start hotel.
Will be nice if you improve your dinners. Our experience with the see food was very disappointing
valet parking, warm welcome, easy check in, very helpful and friendly staff, excellent food at the Coral Restaurant, then sea view.
The surroundings and the location. The atmosphere in general was relaxing.
The lack of training and knowledge of some of the staff. The condition of the facilities.
