Great staff - shame about the way the masseuse team are treated

Stayed here for 9 nights with my partner. Positives 1. Restaurant and beach staff are very helpful and are always smiling and friendly 2. Good as my boyfriend is always active so he could go off and do loads of sports 3. Very sociable place, but beware you will continually be bumping into the same people, and will have to make chit chat when sometimes you just want to chill out Negatives 1. Lunch always the same- salad, pizza and pasta. Very little variation 2. Only 75 percent of hotel was actually renovated. Drilling and building works still going on with scruffy areas and a sewage smell on the stairs leading to the rooms- see photo 3. Lift not working! We had to climb 75 stairs to our room every day to the top floor. Knackering and meant we couldn’t pop back easily during the day. There are also nearly 100 stairs on the other side of the resort leading to the spa area with no lift. So be prepared to do a lot of climbing or I would highly recommend requesting a lower floor room 4. LAST BUT NOT LEAST- you get a spa treatment included daily but if you are a ‘no show’ to the treatment the poor massage ladies do not get paid. They are only paid per treatment so if you get caught up on the beach and do not attend they are sitting around with no pay. A lot of the ladies travel 2 hours to work and back each day, so a 4 hours commute and may only have 3 guest turn up out of their 8 appointments. I feel this is particularly bad of the hotel owners as we do pre-pay in our package cost for the treatments so this means they hold the money back and under pay for staff. Please do attend your treatments as otherwise the masseuses get their pay deducted and have families relying on this money coming in.

Amazing holiday

This was my 2nd trip to the Bodyholiday. I travelled in June 2018 for the theme month ‘Jive June’. I again travelled here solo. There were also many other solo travellers and you never feel out of place or uneasy about being there by yourself. Everyone makes you feel welcome, guests and staff. They hold a communal table every evening. A member of staff hosts it and they meet at 7pm for drinks each night, then go for a meal, so if you dont want to eat alone there are always others to eat with. Treatments - A 50 minute treatment is included each full day of your stay. There are about 10 treatments to choose from and you can book these in advance, but they were easy to change if the times weren’t suitable when you get to the resort. You can also upgrade the treatments if you wish. I had a bamboo massage and hot stones upgrades and these were amazing. All the treatments I had were amazing. Especially the sizzler and serenity massages that were included. The staff are friendly and are fantastic at their jobs. Rooms - I booked a garden room, which are aimed at solo travellers, but you can upgrade. None of the garden rooms have balcony’s. I believe 2 have terraces. One negative about this was there was nowhere to hang out things to dry. The amenities in the room are ‘Ren’. These were lovely. There was lots of wardrobe/drawer space. Lovely shower and giant bed. Each evening they provide a turndown service with a herbal drink and biscuits. Food/Drinks - Lovely Kir Royales and other cocktails. Food in all the restaurants was lovely especially Tao. The staff are so helpful and always provided great service. The deli provided lovely wraps and the homemade fudge is amazing!! Beach - Lovely beach. Not the turquoise sea that I have seen in other Caribbean islands, however this may be because I go during rainy season so the weather is a bit unsettled. Never a problem getting a lounger and they give you buckets of cold water and ice. They also lay your towels out for you and give you a flag which you put in the sand if you want drinks service. Every hour someone comes around with treats, pimms and lemonade, nachos, fruit. Activities - There are so many different activities at this resort that are included. There is always something to do if you don’t want to laze around. There were running groups, spin classes, beach boot camps, aerobics, dance etc. The gym is very well equipped although the air con wasn’t great. There are also water sports included including, water skiing, tubing, hobie cats, canoes. You will never be bored at this place and I would totally recommend going. The transfer is a little long, approx 1hr 45 mins but it is worth it. Some people I met went via helicopter which makes the transfer a little shorter, but this is dependant on the weather.
