The location and the small size of the Beach Club. The food was outstanding and the staff could not have been better, they are enthusiastic and excellent at their jobs and make you feel like they are happy to help with anything.…
It was extraordinary from the greeting at the airport; French champagne on arrival (and THAT view); personalised service at check in / check out (more champagne!); the asistance with bookings; sailing (thanks Rex!) the cleaning staff, resort staff, the list goes on and on.....we have never experienced anything quite as good, anywhere.
The beautiful tropical setting and close proximity to everything I wanted to do.
The location and views were amazing. The ease of getting around and the availability of things to do.
Reef View Hotel
My son Thomas (9) loves your Buffet it's always his highlight of the holiday for me it's mostly the staff they seem to be always ready to do their best to make us enjoy our stay to the full. So thank you all greatly you did a great job, give yourselves a good pat on the back! My highlight is the day spend on On The Edge sailing and snorkeling Thomas discovered sailing thanks to Stew and Sam last year and couldn't wait to get back on their fabulous Catamaran.
Peaceful beautiful views.
Sunset Waters 15
The fact that they're self contained, so you didn't have to eat out every night if you didn't want to.
Peaceful and private
From the moment we arrived at the airport, they took care of our bags and checked us in with a canape and mocktail. When we entered our room we had a lovely gift from Marcus the manager. Thanks Marcus! The room was great. Fantastic view on the second floor and away from the restaurant.…
Tranquility. Location. Views. Service-attention to detail in all areas of operation. Design, construction and maintenance of physical environment. A truly high end and personalised experience. This was my second visit and Iook forward to the next one.
