    We stayed on a family trip with two young children (9and 6) for 6 nights in mid May, good size resort with lots of high quality amenities. Joel in the concierge team was simply outstanding and made our stay.

    Me and my two best friends have just visited this hotel between 6th - 15th may and we loved it! Its been along time coming, after having to cancel and re book a few times due to personal reasons. First good mention will be Chris in reservations, he helped us alot over the last few months, with booking and getting the best rates. When we arrived at 2am on the 6th, we were greeted by a few staff members including Jacob who helped us with our bags during check in and check out. We checked in easy enough, although we wasn’t given much information, we didn’t mind though as we were tired. When we arrived to our room in Prestige suite, the pictures online don’t do it justice, the room was really spacious and nice! The balcony was the biggest balcony we have ever had! The view is amazing, day and night. We ate breakfast on it each morning! The bathroom was modern and the bath was massive! The only downfall was that the sofa bed wasn’t set up, even though the hotel were aware of our arrival time. Which resulted in us complaining. The next day leads me to my next mention: Otman the duty manager, he was really helpful and apologetic towards the situation. He gave us free spa access, which was kind of him. Most managers solve the situation and thats it, but Otman continuously checked up on us during our stay and made sure everything was ok daily. We couldn’t thank him enough for his help and professionalism. We visited Olivers a few times during our stay the sandwiches are really nice and the staff are all friendly! All around the resort staff are all friendly and helpful. Theres alot of bars and restaurants around the resort, we visited Laguna bar, hong loong, porterhouse, maui, olivers they were all really nice. The main pool and beach is easy to access by just going outside the lobby. The beach is really nice and very relaxing! The spa is really relaxing and refreshing, especially the freezing cold plunge pool! I would definitely recommend this hotel and we will definitely return in the future! Read less
