Good 6.0
View from balcony was good.
Found some things too expensive and not worth the money. For example bicycle rentals were too expensive and they weren't even in good condition.

Exceptional 10.0
The resort was very smart, and beautifully appointed. Staff were constantly cleaning, and tidying in the grounds, and the restaurant workers and poolboys very attentive.

Good 6.0
Staff need to improve service levels not told about the pool being out of order, even through we could use the next hotels pool not very convenient. Only three rooms occupied on one night so lonely place to be !

Exceptional 10.0
The actual cost to stay and have food/drink is ok, but once the various charges/fees are added, becomes expensive comparison with rest of islands stays etc
gb3 night family trip
Poor 2.0
Our holiday was ruined as the hotel failed to tell us prior to our stay they were double booked with a corporate booking and MID STAY (10 night booking) we were told that the following day we would be moved to a different hotel. I have a young toddler under 2 this was extremely upsetting. The hotel they moved us to was complete opposite of the relaxed open plan setting being a horrible high rise that also gave us food poisoning. The hotel knew of the double booing but failed to inform us prior to our stay. We were there as a group with family staying in Avani the neighboring hotel Anantara as we were there for a family memorial. This split up our group and ultimately ruined our whole holiday and our family groups holiday.

Good service and good food. But terrible location!
E, gb3 night trip
Good 6.0
It's a nice hotel with a great location - the river on one side and the sea on the other. But Avani is primarily a family resort with lots of kids and large families as guests! Also they don't have a spa in the premises but guests can use the Anantara spa which is amazing but a little pricey. Even though we had a good time, it just felt that the hotel was a little bland, lacked a certain character..

Very Good 8.0
Lovely smaller hotel with everything you need
We had a great stay here with our 2 year old. Great pool and the drinks prices were very affordable. Breakfast buffet was good too. The room service menu was a bit limited and quite expensive compared to some of the other hotels we've stayed at. The complimentary soft drinks were a nice touch and they were very kind about providing warm milk for our little one for all his feeds. There was no shower gel or body lotion, which was a bit of a pain as you expect that at hotel chains. But overall we had a great time.
au2 night trip
Fair 4.0
We arrived early morning and they tried to put us in a room that was directly below building works going on with hammering noticeable, this in peak season We then finished up in a room next to the bar and also cleaning facilities which was also very loud The general quality was not what you would expect from a £280 per night resort, with lack of regular maintenance particularly noticeable Food choice was very limited and expensive Transfer cost of £81 from airport was unacceptable, we got there for £5 using bus and train
