Enrique P. Couples United States of America, August 10, 2015
Phenomenal Location, Lots left to be desired

Location, Location, Location
The stay was pleasant and the staff was very nice. However, for a "5-star" resort and for the price we paid (over $6000 for 3 villas) the level of service, food and accommodation was highly under par. The location is really the only savior for this place. The villas are not well maintained, the place needs a facelift, while the staff was very nice they lack the ability to actually provide good service, the dive center is under-staffed and was unable to accommodate our diving needs (had to seek out a third party company), and the food options were very limited. While you are always greeted with a smile, we weren't given a proper welcome or informed of any of the amneties or otherwise upon arrival, not even breakfast times (a basic for any hotel). As for food, with only 2 restaurants on the property, you would expect daily specials so as to provide variety, but no, the menus are the same everyday...it gets old quick. Everyday we had to specifically ask to get our villas cleaned, and we got lucky a few days that they were "serviced" before 3pm. They were not properly cleaned, dirty dishes were always left behind and dirty/damp towels were not replaced. Unfortunately, the expectations of this place were not met and I would hesitate to recommend it if it were not for the stunning location.

Gayana delivered

service by all staff, ocean view room, quiet and not crowded
Our 3 nights at Gayana Eco Resort were all , if not more than, we hoped for. Right from the start, the friendly staff made an impression and helped in every way possible. The view that greeted us from the transfer boat was very enticing and knowing we'd be snorkelling off our own deck the next morning had us very happy to have chosen Gayana. We can highly recommend this venue, especially the Ocean view rooms. Thank you again to all who made our stay at Gayana so memorable.
