2/10 Poor

Paid almost $1,000 a night, room size is terribly small, some furniture items are damaged/broken, there's not even a chair or a desk to do some work, the room they gave us is next to an aisle across from the restaurant so there's a lot of traffic, I was shocked to see this kind of room for a Belmond property, The Hilton/Marriott probably has much more nicer room size. The beach and restaurant are ok, but the room quality, forget about it, I feel that Ive been ripped off

Beautiful, but bad service
We stayed here for three nights for a short honeymoon. I love luxury resorts, but this one was a little too quiet for us (except the screaming children). Most of the clients were older, or families with young children. The service was extremely slow. The food was below average. But the views were beautiful, and the resort was really pretty. Richard and Nicholas were awesome down at the beach:) Communication with scheduling prior to arrival was pretty bad also:/
