Towels on loungers are 7am, beach and pool over busy. Limited / no mask wearing or distancing. Impossible to book restaurants. Saw dead rat in gardens. Overall not the quality of Anantara hotels I have stayed in elsewhere (Maldives, Thailand, Qasr Al Sarab, Oman etc)

Really attentive lifeguards (thank you, Samuel) who are great with the kids. Kept very clean in these Covid times. We will definitely return. My only small complaint was at my bed was too soft.

This place is wow. It is just fantastic. I can never say enough positive things about this place. We stayed in one of the Villas and it was a genuinely good and perfect experience. The WiFi was good, it didn't matter where we were around the hotel.

This was our 2nd time staying as a family and we will definitely be returning. The hotel itself is excellent for families and very child friendly. The main swimming pool is perfect as lots of shallow areas around the edge and the beach is really nice too. (Careful of the odd jellyfish!) Always plenty on sun beds or other places to sit round the pool. The lagoon pool is much quieter and more private but equally nice. The hotel room (standard residence bedroom) was spacious, clean and well equipped. Air con is great and a nice balcony area as well. Cleaned every day with plenty of towels provided. Beds are comfortable and good size. All the staff at the hotel and friendly and helpful and really can’t do enough for you. Everywhere is so clean and tidy. Only takes about 40 mins from the airport. We had a couple of short visits to the kids club and the staff are so friendly and nice. The buffet is definitely better than when we went a couple years ago to the point we cancelled a couple restaurant bookings at the hotel to go their instead. So much variety and choice every night and really good quality food. It also has a play room for kids which is very handy!! Another brilliant family holiday and we can’t wait to come back again soon!
