Alternatively, head to the Mix Bar where you can enjoy some pool, watch live sports or just relax in trendy and laidback settings.

For meals, two dining options await, serving Thai and international cuisine including Italian dishes whilst for a carefree and relaxing option, full and half board options are available.  Wi-Fi is available for a fee.

Robert and Lynette Thomson

Our room was located in the Lagoon Pool area, very comfortable and clean. But it badly needs updating. Paint peeling in shower recess, furniture needs maintenance. Patio and furniture needed cleaning. No umbrella in room, robes or slippers. Safe did not work,but was promptly attended to. Other wise, we enjoyed our stay, great location. We would stay here again.

another break

Scunthorpe, United Kingdom

Booked two weeks in this hotel for early September 2017,flying with Emirates from manchester,although we were aware that this was rainy season,it didnt deter us from going.Arriving at approx. 0900hrs we only had to wait a short time to check into our room, this after the normal Do you want to upgrade your room very cheap. The room we had was clean air conditioned and appropriate for our use, with tea and coffee, ample bottled water replenished each day at no extra cost,so well done to the hotel for this .The facilities were very good particullarly the swimming pools,we could get snacks or main meals in the hotel,not cheap, but we chose to eat in the little resturants situated around the resort,eating local food off the mobile canteens.As stated it was rainy season and it did rain heavily but not enough to spoil our holiday,it got so heavy at one point that the rooms on the bottom floors were emptied and both doors left open to allow the flood to wash through into the swimming pools,leaing this unfit for use for about a week,no problem there was three more pools to use so nothing spoiled. At checkout we had to wait to allow room inspection fpor the return of the deposit we had puit down. I cannot praise the hotel staff or facilities enough,it was a great break even wityh the rain and would not hesitate to return to this hotel if i go in that direction again.
