Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The main building was beautiful with high arched ceilings. It was beautifully decorated and fresh flowers daily. The water features were lovely, with some large fish in some. The restaurant we used was the large one down stairs. We used the smaller room off the main as it was air-conditioned and less busy. Our room was on the 3rd floor of one of the annexes, and was wonderful, - beautifully appointed, with a balcony overlooking the excellent pool. The staff were very friendly and gave excellent service without exception. The buffet dinners and breakfast were excellent. Sorry - keep repeating excellent but it all was! Loved the wonderfully maintained gardens. Also used the beach bar which was right on the beach and very friendly service (Must mention Dev who made me the best ever margaritas.) As we were at the end of the monsoon season, it wasn't doing food all day, but we tried a beach bar snack one evening before dinner and it was delicious.

We stayed in a villa and I was impressed by the architecture more than anything. I feel that the restaurant let then down though.
