    3/5 Okay

    Rooms/resort laid out oddly, bathroom was weird
    Firstly, I'll say that we stayed at 3 different resorts in this area. So we have a good basis to compare. This resort has a weird layout, as if it was a ski resort, with the front desk being at the "base lodge" and the rooms being in their own buildings up and into the "piste map". We got room 322 which was at the very very back of the resort. Unlike other resorts, there was nothing at the back, you must walk all the way to the front to use the pool, come to concierge/front desk, use the restaurant, etc. They have golf carts as a shuttle service, however. If you rented a car, you must park it down by front desk, and have a golf cart drive you all the way back to your room, which is annoying for large families and check in check out process. The room had a large cavernous bathroom, that felt very much like a highway rest stop bathroom. It had a "waterfall style" shower, along with a regular shower. But this proved not as useful, and in fact invited a few large bugs to crawl into the room. We were frightened by a beetle/cockroach looking bug that was approx 3-4 inches long. For the nightly rate of this resort, we stayed at another resort down the main road that was slightly cheaper and just as nice without the unnecessary frills and spread-out geography. Wifi was nice though, as was the bed, AC, staff were friendly, and the breakfast buffet was excellent value (though other resorts nearby at similar prices have these). I wouldn't stay here again, honestly.

    Wonderful property. Very very very clean.
    This property was extremely clean and pristine! The rooms were large and the waterfall shower was a neat touch. The pool area was terrific as well. We weren't impressed with the food at dinner, but the breakfast was great. At dinner, we had a waiter that seemed new and he didn't really seem interested in us. The lady that ran the food was more concerned with us and seemed nice. The head bartender at the pool was AWESOME and very entertaining. He even "smoked" a glass in front of us for a special drink. So cool!

    Our villa was huge and kids loved it. Lots of animals on site. Our pool was refreshing. The staff was very helpful with everything. The only negative point is that everything was very expensive (room, meals, activities and transport).
