Exceeded expectations

Very large room for the superior. No need to upgrade unless you want a separate bedroom. The beach in front of Seaview building is much nicer than the small beach beside the swimming pool area, but don't go deep as it's not monitored. Accommodating for kids. Chinese restaurant Li Gong is a must do...

Eating

Pros: The staff were wonderful polite & very attentive & helpful
Cons: A shuttle bus into town. They said a taxi would cost the same as the hotel car at $35 this is way too expensive to go a get a meal somewhere else.
Location: Nothing else to do but use the hotel facilities & you were not allowed to go to the beach to swim
The resort is lovety however several restaurants were closed and is was expensive to travel away from the resort to get a meal which meant you had to eat inhouse. It would have been good a have a shuttle bus into town.
