4 out of 5
Pros: Excellent location
Cons: Transfers too and from the airport poorly organised with long wait times.
Location: Beautiful beach.
Facilities: Average western standard.; Value: Reasonable; Service: Limited.; Cleanliness: Okay overall.; The food is very poor especially considering the cost, eat up the road at Matafonua. Food is cheaper, more choice and much better.
