All services as advertised, great customer service.
Daily $35 parking fee (really $40 with all the taxes)
Private beach with lava reef barrier which means less wave than a normal beach: very safe for kids to play and snorkel in it.
Lots of moths in patio every morning (but I think that's a part of the tropical environment). Not particularly bothering.
We visited three resorts all around the islands and this was easily the best. The beach was private and not over-crowded. We snorkeled with sea turtles and all kinds of other tropical fish right on the hotels beach. Dining options and area around the resort were amazing as well. Well worth the money and we will be definitely be returning.
We absolutely love everything else. The facilities were very nice. Everything was clean. The rooms were excellent. I fell on love with Lynn at the front desk and Derek at the beach side bar. They both went above and beyond the call of duty. We also loved the fact that, even though they could not accommodate and early check-in, once we came back, check into our rooms, all of us things were already there. That was awesome. And appreciated.
This is a huge place. And it is a long, long walk from the front desk to your room. There should be some sort of cooling system in the lobby area. It's all open air and it can be very hot. The open air restaurant with all the flies and birds was a joke.
Very nice ambient atmosphere and location with an acces to the beach.
Valet and bell guys at arrival - too pushy for our comfort.
