Excellent resort

Moorestown, New Jersey

The service and everything was amazing! I highly recommend the Club and the staff. They really helped us and went out of their way to ensure we were taken care of. We had a lot dietary restrictions and the chef and team really made exceeded our expectations.

Amazing!

Epsom, United Kingdom

Our stay here was amazing! We loved every minute of it and the staff and the luxury feel were the main reasons for this, in particular Habeeb who was our room cleaner was great and was the only person to do something for our honeymoon! Deepak and Fiaz on the bar were also brilliant, they were happy to chat, served great drinks and were always on hand with a top up when we needed it! (Apologies if I got the names wrong or spelled them wrong). We did the whale shark excursion which was fantastic, I hate the sea, but they made you feel save and it really is a must do when you are in the area. This was just one of many great sea based excursions that included night fishing, sunset boat trip, snorkeling and a semi submarine! etc. The food was nice, but was the only part of the hotel that I think could be slightly improved, as the buffet was different each day and really nice food, but the options were very limited compared to many other all inclusive buffet style meals you find. The al a carte restaurants were also very nice very set on the menu and lots more was chargeable which was annoying but still very nice. The rooms were clean and beautiful, we stayed on a deluxe over water villa and couldn't have hoped for much more, clean, in good condition, overlooked the water beautifully and were not a far walk to anything due to the intimate nature of the island.
