The resort facilities following the upgrade are excellent. It is a beautiful island, the rooms are nice, the pools are good, the living reef and related activities are outstanding and the restaurants/food are good. The service staff are trying very hard but are clearly inexperienced, not adequately trained, under-resourced and most importantly not adequately managed or supervised. The wait times for drinks and food are not acceptable. The marine staff facilitating the living reef activities were excellent. The restaurant and bar service consistently does not meet basic expectations let alone expectations that would meet the standards and the enormous potential of the resort post the upgrade. With decent management this resort has significant potential but is not currently meeting the mark. Notwithstanding this our kids had a fun holiday.

Likes: very relaxing, clean & modern; we thoroughly enjoyed our time there (yet again); movie selection was awesome; no charge for washing & drying clothes or powder; marine carpet along the walkways reduced foot traffic noise; and the rainforest walk viewing platform was excellent Dislikes - Fruit at breakfast one morning looked old; limited variety of basic style meals; a compendium in the rooms would be handy, especially to see what the restaurants meals are like as well as their cost; activities were supposed to take place daily but there was no sign of interest from staff to get them underway; on previous visits, if staff walked past they would always say hi, which made for a very friendly atmosphere - this was not the case this visit; we were expecting the payment for accommodation to be taken from our account prior to our visit, however it wasn't and we therefore had to pay a $30 credit card fee; and there was no nightly entertainment even though it was on activities sheet.
