      Service is amazing

      Can't say much about the hotel because we didn't end up staying there since there was a bit of a mix up of over-booking so Ayesha (I think that was her name) booked us into another hotel for the night. She picked us up from the airport to drop us off ensuring that we had breakfast organised and called to confirm pickup in the morning as well. The service is seriously above and beyond amazing. We didn't hear very good reviews about staying on the mainland before going to a resort but I would definitely recommend Ayesha and Star Shell.
