The Bad: - It all boils down to poor management. Or rather in this case, egotistical management. The management are condescending and always around acting like the big kahunas. Example - all guests had to pay for a compulsory New Years Eve dinner. However, the entire management team and what seemed to be friends of theirs from the community were occupying tables close to us. We were acquainted with guests who we're stuck literally in a corner upstairs under a mouldy bit of ceiling while the management ate and drank away downstairs. The management and staff also occupied the dancefloor. I got the impression that the guests paid for a staff party. 2. This is just wrong - an invasion of privacy. At this disastrous New Years Eve party, the MC announced that the management had decided who Miss Sands and her runners up would be. Note that NO ONE enters a beauty pageant. What happened was that the management literally checked out guests, picked the prettiest and announced it to th surprised winners. 3. Same food every day - 5% variation with all inclusive. Guests we spoke to who weren't all-inclusive said that the a la carte restaurant only got their order right once and it was cold. 4. On the 30th, prep began for the NY Eve party. Unfortunately it involved wires and live cables running around the pool sher kids were swimming and splashing about. Moms began calling their kids. I took pics and confronted management. They didn't seem to understand what he problem was and staff were laughing when I took pics. In the end I got them to stop working with electricity (connected in an odd, unsafe way), when I told them that regardless of their standards, that sort of thing would not be allowed in places like the US, UK etc. Other guests then stopped by and agreed. 5. Strong swimmers recommended for the beach as the tide is strong. Hubby and I swam but the kids didn't. The good: The spa staff, laundry staff were good. The rooms have beautiful views. Ok beach

It's also good surprise for us staying in Aikken, the kids enjoyed very much the seashore, playing with the waves all day long, getting very dark then after. Food is excerlent. Do try the seafood BBQ in the hotel! hope to be back again.
