We booked this resort as it was stipulated that kids stay, eat and play for free. The website and menus clearly stated that there was one free kids meal per one paying adult when staying in house. We were then advised we would have to pay an additional $460 in order to get the kids meals free - which would not be free in this instance.The manager was quite argumentative when trying to discuss the meals even though I could show where their advertising stayed the kids free meals. Nothing was resolved and we were charged full price upon departure. We have always stayed at this resort in the past but would definitely not bother returning. It is a shame we could not have had this resolved rather than trying to resolve this for over a month prior to our stay which dragged on into our holiday. Day 2 we signed out son and a friends son into the kids club and 10-15 minutes later we spotted them wandering around the resort only to be told they had snuck out when the staffs backs were turned - the boys are 5 years old, luckily we spotted them and they were close by. The staff at the daycare were very friendly and our son did go back in there to play again but not to stay and with us keeping an eye on the club whilst he was in there to avoid any issues.

We felt the resort offered a variety of everything, for couples thru to families. The snorkelling in the lagoon out front is supurb, and would be hard to beat. We felt the meals could have been a little better, but enjoyed what we had there.
