7.0 Good
Pros: Nice attentive professional staff, Good view of sea from room. This is a lovely big hotel with fantastic facilities. The rooms were beautiful, smart and high tech.
Cons: ”Although it was flash some things in the room were "too clever" I am not stupid but couldn’t work out how to use the phone although I tried to use it several times, the shower leaked, the bidet plug was stuck in, the aircon over enthusiastic. Our experience was marred a little by the fact that we were initially overcharged for the room but this was quickly sorted, but then found when checking out that the restaurant staff had failed to clear the bar bill which we had paid in cash for the meal and drinks the night before. It was all sorted, but was unnecessary hassle.

Pros: Breakfast was excellent. The room was excellent as well. Enjoyed all the facilities that were available to us and the service was very good and staff was veyr friendly. We enjoyed the spa very much. Everything was always clean.
Cons: Food and drink was very expensive. Certain things weren't disclosed to us which we only found out near the end of our stay eg. towel tokens, shuttle to the valley of the pools.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Location . Short walk to the beach and close to a small shopping center. Great sea view from the patio and main bedroom.
Cons: There is a flight of stairs that has to be used to gain entrance to the flat. You will be unable to reach the apartment if you are unable to climb stairs/ and carry luggage. Monkeys roam freely.They can become a nuisance if they are around the area.
6.7 Good
Pros: 1) Location: Tahiti is right across the Total garage and just a short walk from the beach. Very close to Spar for ones Masi needs. So I liked that I was able to help my parents across to the beach without much fuss. 2) The accommodation was clean, and generally not too far off from that described in the listing. 3) Beach view from the front door. 4) Allocated parking per tenant.
Cons: 1) Instructions were sent via email to let us know where to fetch keys during office hours, but no information was given regarding where to collect keys after 17h00. Also, we had experienced problems with the rental company at the airport, so we're running late. No effort was made by the estate agent regarding progress of our arrival. 2) No Wi-fi. I am aware that the booking.com listing stated the lack of Wi-fi, but this is something that should be provided. 3) We had no sleep the first night due to a noisy neighbour who was screaming in a drunken haze the entire night. 3) No fans in rooms. Only a single aircons in kitchen area. 4) Poorly maintained. Deep crack in the floor near the common bathroom. And one can actually feel a higher temperature on the floor in this area. Definitely a plumbing issue. Shower head is ancient. Not enough of water coming out of the shower due to defective showerhead. 5) No mosquito screen on windows to prevent mosquitoes. And there were lots of Mosquitoes. We used up 4 cans of Doom and 2 cans of repellent spray in a 4 day period. 6) Front door could not be locked from the outside. So we stuck to locking the gate only and just closing the door.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The beds were comfortable. The entire accomodation was of satisfactory. Few too many stairs but if you don't have any leg I juries. It's super great. Very nice place. Monkeys visited but not troublesome. Thank you
