the location was great, very clean & well maintained. i have lots of allergies so remote travels sometimes can be difficult but the chefs accommodated me really well and exceeded all expectations! the food at this place is fantastic, can easily compete with some of the best Melbourne Crown Casino restaurants! one thing that was quite annoying is that we were not allowed to smoke on the balcony, yet the room had an ashtray. i understand not everyone likes the smell of smoke but i have never stayed at a hotel where you are required to walk to a pool side to have a cigarette when your room has a balcony (and we are very seasoned travelers with some of the world's best resorts in our experience). overall it was a great experience and the best place to stay around the area.
