Google Reviews

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   My second visit to the island and to say that everything was perfect would be an understatement. The warmth that comes from the staff makes you feel like family. All the staff are so friendly and warm and embrace all visitors, young and old. The accommodation is very well laid out, spacious and clean. Always something to do, even if it is nothing. Everyone that works on the island, from wait staff, babysitters, cleaner, activities right up to the GM all mingle with their guest adding that extra level of family feels. From welcome to farewell, there is nothing to fault. Can't wait to return again, and again.

Review:   Unfortunately we cut our 2 night stay to one night after been put by a construction zone and when we called to book we were not advised this was going on especially given we had booked directly with the resort paying $570 per night no specials. Simply not good enough. Rooms were lovely however. No complimentary milk when you are supplied everything else for a hot drink. Rooms were very dark. Service for food was extremely slow and when it did come it was cold. The whole resort felt untidy. Unfortunately it was no longer the island I remembered from my childhood and will not return to plantation island.
