The perfect place for a couple to go to relax and unwind. Plenty of things to do, but costly altough no more than at any other 5 star resort I've stayed at. Food choice was excellent with the five restaurants to choose from. Ideal couples getaway. Very few kids there when we went - fantastic! P&Q! We'll be going back!

Amazing Island Paradise

Great location and resort facilities. Staff were great, friendly and warm and a little lacking. Food was good quality but as you expect in a resort like this very overpriced. Not much variation in food at restaurants although they are marketed as distinct. Overall a great 4 days and would recommend thouroughly.
