Excellent4.0 / 5
Gorgeous views wherever you look!
Good deal for the price. Rooms are a bit dated, air conditioner is loud but works well. Bed was nice size and comfortable. The staff is very friendly and try to accommodate all of your needs. Showers nice and hot and great water pressure. Many european guests, not many american guests. Very quiet and not many kids (which we didn't mind, we didn't bring ours). Beach front rooms have gorgeous views and you can walk right out onto beach. Gorgeous location, views. Wonderful infinity pool looking out onto lagoon. Patio boards around pool need to be replaced, but I believe they were working on that. Breakfast buffet was very good, especially omelet station. They have an amazing coral garden right within the resort that they have raised to help preserve and create coral. Incredible fish viewing.

Bad experience
The old lady at the concierge desk would try to understand what we wanted , she would just put her opinion in first place. The younger gentleman on the other hand would go an extra mile try his best in doing his job. They wouldn't allow us to use the room for a late check out, stating that the room would be occupied as soon as we checked out (what we discovered was a lie), instead they let us use an old bathroom for us to take a shower before our flight. This hotel is not worth for the price. Wouldn't go back!

Try Somewhere Else
This hotel was just okay. We stayed in a beach bungalow facing the beach. It felt a like glamping. The room was dated and had a horrible smell (like a strong paint or shallac). We were there for 3 nights and it never went away. The restaurant served buffets most nights, which were just okay. The breakfast buffets were good. There aren't other restaurant options outside of bar food or going across to the private island, which was expensive and not that great. We wished we stayed somewhere else. The only plus was it was close to a little market. Given our limited food choices, we ended up buying food. Outside of the concierge, the staff wasn't that friendly.

Bad on almost all levels
If you want over the top snobbiness, overpriced bad food, and an "over-water bungalow" that's likely smack next to someone else or facing the restaurant, than this is your place! As soon as we arrived, we were given a pointless "tour" around the small resort, which turned out to be more of an effort to sell us pearls and waste some time since we had to wait for our room for 3 hours. When we finally were shown to our bungalow, it was in an awful spot facing the restaurant and pool area (about 20 feet away); so much for any privacy on our honeymoon. After complaining rather persistently (and them telling us "the resort was full", which was so ridiculously untrue we couldn't even justify it with a response), they tried to sell us on a bungalow at the "private island" for an additional $300 per night. We refused and threatened writing a bad review. Suddenly, a bungalow with a better located magically appeared and we stayed there. Not a relaxing start or good first impression. The restaurants were both lousy and WAY overpriced. We had a burger and fries (as in literally about 4 French fries on the plate) for lunch and it was extremely tasteless and bland. We thought maybe dinner would be better but $130 got us some tasteless lasagna (ever hear of seasoning?!?) with undercooked eggplant to the point that it was literally crunchy. Snorkeling was no better- there was literally ZERO fish in the water. It seems this resort destroyed all the coral when building it (as we were told later by the guide on a tour) and the hundreds of concrete pillars driven into the reef have let nothing survive. For a so-called "luxury resort", the place is in poor condition. The fences along the pathway are broken and the wood is rotten. We were so happy that we weren't there long. We went to Mai Tai Polynesia down the street and got a nice room with an ocean view for 1/3 the price and it was a much more "real" experience. If you want an over-water bungalow there are much better choices-
