    We loved the beachfront. We could snorkel off the beach at the resort and the snorkelling was quite good when the tide was in. The sunsets were magnificent.

    The traffic noise especially at night as I am a light sleeper. Not a lot of restaurants close by. There is a bus stop right outside but easier if you have your own car.

    Continental breakfast was nice, staff were lovely, rooms were okay & the grounds exceeded expectations - beautiful gardens, restaurant & pools.

    Bathroom could do with an upgrade but it was okay-- met expectations.

    The beach front location! Definitely worth spending the money on the beach front rooms. There was a nice sandy beach and large lawn area, plenty of chairs and a lovely area for swimming which was clear of coral and rocks and white soft sand. The gentleman who did the breakfast service was a delight!

    Staff at front desk weren't overly helpful when we asked for assistance to book a restaurant. Possibly not a place to go if you wanted any kind of night life

    Fantastic resort. The grounds are gorgeous -- meticulously kept -- and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The location was beautiful and the rooms had everything we needed. Definitely go for a beachfront room if you can. It's worth it.

    It would be nice if there was a small beachfront bar or restaurant, but there were plenty of beachfront chairs and there was no issue taking drinks from the restaurant and bar from the center of the resort to the beach. The food was decent, but more healthy options -- such as grilled fish and rice -- would be fantastic.

    The outdoor area was attractive especially the gardens around the pool area.

    All eight 2-bedroom pool side suites (4 upstairs 4 downstairs) are located by the main road traffic. It was noisy & annoying - opposite to the vibe I wanted from my Cook Island experience. The reception desk response was to wear earplugs. They were not helpful. There were many items that needed attention 1. loose door entrance handle 2. loose electrical socket in bathroom 3. unaligned toilet door - has to be forcefully slam for it to shut 4. screechy sliding doors 5. missing louvre in bedroom 6. no dish rack to dry dishes 7. no netting over long bathroom window to keep out mosquitos. And you can’t leave bathroom window open when you go out as there’s no security latch & anyone could climb through it easily. I gave a list of these things to reception on my 2nd day. Nothing was done; not even the screechy sliding door. I stayed in No 32 upstairs 2 bedroom poolside suite. Be warned about the traffic noise. They say the windows are double glazed - well it doesn’t make a dent on the disturbance of traffic.
