Themiya G. Families with young children Sri Lanka, August 10, 2014
I was shocked to see the room 1st night

Restaurant Managers so good, restaurant (kitchen) also very good
First night we were transfered to a very low grade room...and given 2 room .so schocked to be there....staff guided us to this room as they said the hotel was full and from the 2nd day we were transfered to the villas. As example we buy first class tickets and stay in 3rd class.....so upset
Atsushi H. Families with young children Japan, July 31, 2014
The experience does not worth the price

food only
Professionality of staffs were not seen. It took so much effort to resolve even small problems which we faced. I had to call reception at least 3 times to make things actually happen. For example, the internet connection recovery took 1.5 days, and i had to contact so many times to reception to arrange IT technician to my room. There are so many similar cases beside this. My stay was at discount price and half of the original price, however, the service level was far below than what i paid for it. I regret to stay this hotel for my vacation.

Water villa, staff, diving
Room: We upgraded to a water villa on arrival - well worth it. Huge bedroom and bathroom, private deck, direct access to lagoon, convenient deck shower to wash off sea water, no bugs. Only downside to water villa is lack of shade - there's an umbrella and a shady area dependand on the time of day, but if you must have shade then you're better off in a beach bungalow. Food: Full board+ is a must - all meals plus drinks with meals. Drinks at happy hour were half price and pretty reasonable - 2 glasses of prosecco for $12. Food at the buffet was good quality and varied. Highlights were pizza, sashimi, ice cream. We asked for more curry and ended up having a fantastic Indian buffet delivered to our table every lunch-time! Only negative was the quality of the included wine - rose was OK but red and white were pretty poor - but that's maybe just my taste. Bottled water was supplied ad lib. Staff: Our waiter, Hammeed, was excellent - very attentive, always ready with a top-up of rose, ready for a chat anytime. Diving: Excellent. Good equipment, excellent dive leader Fareed, who saw everything. Daily sightings of reef sharks, turtles, rays etc. Also lucky to dive with whale shark, manta. Snorkelling on the house reef was v good - you could snorkel out the reef edge from our water villa, which was great but you had to take note of the tide - when very low it wasn't possible but at those times you could just walk 5 min to the jetty and jump in there. Overall: Great value, didn't get bitten once, no tummy upsets, excellent food and drinkable wine
