We had an early flight arrival so we were in the resort by 9am, check in was quick and informative, we had breakfast but unfortunalty had to wait until 2pm for our room. (No ones fault as check out wasnt till 12 ) The wait was worth it having been given an upgrade sea view and it was outstanding. We even got a late check out till 4pm. The room was very lovely and the bed was incredibly comfortable however the 37 mosquito bites i got made the holiday a bit sour. The food was incredible apart from the buffet for the evening, The deserts all tasted the same and nothing was outstanding. However, we went to the chateau for the fine dinning tasting menu and boy it did not disappoint, even was made a birthday cake that was probably the best cake i have ever tasted. We did a few paid restaurants over at the Telfair, highly recommend the Ginja restaurant and better quality prosecco for sure. A great extra was the free water activities, we did sea kayaking which was great a the free glass bottem boat was an added bonus, but i will say they have to sore the boat routes out as the bottom of the boat was scraping the coral, were trying to preserve our coral reefs not destroy them. The team work very hard but dont think when you order a drink you will get it there and then, dont go thirsty ! A great holiday and beautiful memories. Read less

Golf course is amazing! Had a mix of weather some rain and sunshine but always warm. Unfortunately one day the course was closed in the morning.due to rain. But you are well looked after when you finish with great food and service. Big shout out to Daksh you were fantastic! Thank you.

This was our second visit to the Heritage Awali and the second time was even better! The staff are amazing, they can’t do enough for you. Navish, Front Office Manager, made our stay even better, our trip with him for dinner at la Reserve Golf Club, was truly amazing, thank you. Bar staff and restaurants were great, a special mention to Zafarani and the golf club, for lunch were brilliant. Zenzi Bar staff were great, surprising us with a different cocktail daily, although I must admit the Amaretto sour was a firm favourite 😀 the coco shack is well worth a visit, such a great way to spend half an hour out of the sun. My husband enjoyed the golf enormously, especially the round at la reserve, he also met some great people on the golf course, who we both spent some great times with (you know who you are!) I would definitely recommend this hotel, with its beautiful staff and amazing surroundings. Thank you again, for the best holiday 😀 Read less
