Came here for the last night on the island to try the Seafood Platter - absolutely stunning! $75 for the two of us is a great deal, and we left very full and happy. Plus a great range of cocktails and views through a garden to the ocean beyond.

Happy hour that lasts 3 hours - YES PLEASE!! Best cocktails on the island - some of them had up to 6 shots per cocktail! Food was amazing as always, I could just live on Ika Mata (raw fish dish).

Really helpful and friendly staff, and meals came out in a timely manner! As we were staying there, we usually had breakfast, snacks and supper there. Overall, the portion sizes were decent, and everything we ate was delicious!

We stayed at this resort and got to sample breakfasts, snacks and dinners. Great food - tasted lovely, there is a lot of choice and generous servings. The buffets are even better. To cap it all off the dining area looks directly out to sea at the point where the sun sets - magnificent.

Their fries are amazing and every meal I had there beat my expectations. Really tasty and good sized portions. (We ended up sharing some plates because of amount of food). Perfect location on the beach as well.

Ocean's literally has your front row seats for watching the sunset! Happy hour specials are great. The kitchen graciously accommodated requests for vegetarian options as these are limited on the menu. Service is great! The breakfast buffet had a wide variety of options that changed daily.
