We absolutely love staying at this resort. It really is a place like no other. From the gorgeous property, fabulous bungalows, amazing food, and stellar staff. We truly enjoy our time there. We were a little disappointed with the broken toilet seat and clogged sink, however they came to fix it super fast.

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness
It’s a great property, but they are sadly using Covid to mask under-staffing in their food and bev. To wit, a guest at the hotel should never be told (multiple times) that there might not be room outside for dinner, especially on an uncrowded weeknight for 2. To be told that there might not be room for dinner in a vast outdoor area with tons of open seating, really highlighted either a lightly staffed kitchen, or wait staff, or likely both. If you are OPEN, and a 5 star property, then you should never tell a hotel guest anything other than YES when they call for a table.
