The hospitality and the service were exceptional... faultless! The staff were so friendly and so helpful, especially with our 18 month old. They took the time to learn our names and, over the ten days, made us feel like family.
With an 18 month old, we found the long trip from the airport a little tiring but I suppose that's the sacrifice one makes for the sake of seclusion (it was awesome to be away from the city, pollution and commercialism).
The room was very well kept and regularly cleaned but we found it a little small for our needs and would have to consider a suite (an increased cost) for any future stay.
Taste-wise, the food was very good, if expensive (when compared to home) and, although I understand that this is part of resort stays, the expense still stung. The flamboyant head chef was an absolute delight! His enthusiasm and passion were contagious and he was always so eager to please. The Japanese restaurant was also a pleasant surprise considering we didn't see any Japanese chefs in the kitchen and the food was as good as any Japanese I've had. The extra money we splashed out to dine in the bure one night and at the seafood restaurant on another night, were worth it. There was nothing with the food that was bad.
The children had an absolute ball. Our 10 year old son spent his days playing in the water, climbing trees, looking for crabs (and sea-snakes) and making friends at the kids club while our 18 month old was happy to splash around in the pool or on the shore and wander around soliciting cuddles from the staff.
Overall, it was a great stay. I would call it a 95% place to stay (almost perfect) and the changes that I would make if I were in charge would be minor... I would have liked to see the local fruit and seafood featured a lot more heavily and I would have been willing to pay for some luxury options (such as a musician while we dined in the bure).
