beautiful resort
this was our second trip staying here, there was some obvious wear on the resort and it is currently undergoing renovations. the dive and snorkel is amazing, the best I've ever seen. going to the resort the speed boat was fine, coming back to male, it seemed a bit dangerous because we were going way too fast for such a small boat. Leen was an obvious highlight, she went above and beyond to help and arrange things like island hopping. the rest of the staff was hit or miss. the dive shop staff was consistently amazing.

good
It was awesome vacation with family. We had such a wonderful view of emerald sea from hotel. And hotel's staff are really kind to us. But only thing I was disappointed is that room and bathroom is not clean enough. I stayed with parents in triple bad room. But they gave us only one shampoo and body wash. I kept asking them to give us more but they gave us only one everyday. it was very inconvenient. Except that, everything was good.

Not a well managed resort.
Nice resort in terms of diving and greatwater bungalows. However, the cleanliness and housekeeping was pathetic. They just made up the beds and we had to ask for our toilet and bathroom to be cleaned. The toilets near the restaurants and pool were dirty. The trouble with this resort is the top management and front office. The chefs do barmen are very good but obviously they are given directions in terms of food and beverages. The choice was abysmal and the quality of cocktails in the all inclusive range very limited and boringly the price we paid per night. We were celebrating a special anniversary and didn't want any freebies but at the time of check in we were asked to complete a long form mentioning all our likes and dislikes etc and also special dates but all this was ignored. So, we are wondering why we wasted so much of our time to complete useless questionnaires which were then ignored. The food and choice was limited. Snacks outside the meal times consisted of one or two items such as sandwiches or ribbon cakes and that's it. Personally, there are better resorts. The top management is nonexistent and whilst the staff are very good, they are given limited discretion. So overall, apart from the diving a dissatisfied 6 nights. I wouldn't go back

Poor customer service and money scammers
Poor customer service! I tried to book a the seaplane separately from my friend's boat transfer 3 wks in advance; necwr heard back from the hotel and ended up having to take the boat. Poor communication from staff; we were informed by staff that our lunch was included free of charge our first day due to our arrival time...we were charged anyway. They also told us we were on half board (breakfast and dinner included in price) that was a lie; we were breakfast only and were charged additionally for lunch and dinner despite us trying to upgrade in advance to save money. There too many hidden fees, we ended up paying over $300 in extra costs. Thr staff is unaware of their own property rules, they all give inconsistent information! Food and alcohol were only available during set times; not 24/7 like all of the resorts I've visited prior to this one. There's no fine dining, dancing or shows at this resort, just snorkeling, diving, fishing, and fish feeding. I will not be visiting again.
