This resort falls short of being altogether sophisticated but depending on the room made available by the booking clerk - the room initially offered us was tired, poorly located and thoroughly uninspiring - the accommodation can be pleasant enough at an acceptable price or somewhat better at a high price. The gardens and new swimming pool are delightful, as is the beach facing the lagoon. A quiet drink at the lagoon bar to the accompaniment of live music makes for a pleasant, dreamy afternoon. The restaurant is more utilitarian than discreet but it "gets the job done". A shortcoming is the lack of immediate access to ocean water deep enough for swimming; the lagoon is shallow - good for kiddies but frustrating for adults wanting to exercise. There are, of course, boat excursions available but if taken from the hotel, they are expensive; if travelers choose, as we did, to negotiate boat trips with enterprising outsiders who seem to wangle entrance to hotel premises, they should be careful to avoid unmentioned add-on charges and unforeseen complications.

Now J-she and the driver are both very concerned whilst I’m cackling with glee at our impending disaster. J-she is not impressed. Nor is our driver, his fuel tank is empty and his car is about to fill up with water. I'm egging hi9m on "C'mon that motorcycle ...
... only had an hour before our luggage expired (you could only buy timeslots of 3 hours, so if we didn’t make it back in time we'd be about £10 out of pocket!). Arnaud put in a heroic performance and sprinted up, ran round Buddha and took the stairs down 2 at a time all in 9 mins. We ran for the cable car but unfortunately there was a huge queue to go back down the mountain and we doubted we would make it back in time. On the way down we realised that if we had to pay for ...
... in and swam. The bottom was super rocky, so we swam into deep water. My dad and I tried to swim close to the fall, but the current was too strong. Also, once we got close, we literally couldn't breathe because of so much mist. I actually made it within 20 feet from the waterfall.
After swimming there, we went to the other smaller fall. I didn’t swim there; instead, I went to see the pet monkey the family that owns ...
... t think it was as good as the other dives, but I’m not a pro like her so I was easily impressed to see hundreds of fish all around me! In the evening we had a massage on the beach (not quite the relaxing experience I had imagined, but very enjoyable) and wandered down the beach trying to decide where to eat as there was such a huge choice. In the end we were tempted by a parrot fish (we’d seen lots of these during while we were diving and were curious to find out ...
