Our family of 3 which includes a precocious 4 y.o. spent 5 wonderful nights at the Andaman. Our trip was special from pickup to drop off. We opted for the Bentley for p/u at the airport, I know, a little over the top but how often would you get the opportunity to ride in a Bentley? We were greeted by Vijay upon check in and from the minute we arrived, he and his team were incredible. Vijay made sure to always say hello whenever he saw us and to check in on our stay. He is one of the nicest and most personable resort/hotel managers that we've ever met. Vijay took an active interest in our comfort which was a step above what most resort/hotel managers have done in the past. I cannot tell you how incredible his service and attention to detail was every day. His smile, relaxed personality and overall demeanor made our stay at the Andaman well worth the trip from New York City. Some positives from the stay: - Kids pool area - Toys for the kids to play with in the water - Kid play room which we unfortunately didn't use - Incredible spa treatments, my wife and I both indulged - Breakfast buffet, great selection of food each and every day - Smiles from all of the staff when we were walking all over the resort, we felt welcome One negative: - Ants, not sure why they came into our room and/or lingered but it was a very minor nuisance. Other than the ants the trip was incredible. Not to mention the staff provided us with two small cakes to celebrate my wife's 40th bday and my daughter's 4th bday. Exceptional detail and care which made the trip even more special. I can't say enough great things about the resort, its location, the staff and just the relaxed environment allowed us to really disconnect from our lives and enjoy the beautiful scenery and amenities the Andaman offered. We felt blessed to have stayed at this resort over all the others on the island. We highly recommend this resort to other families with kids. As a Platinum SPG member I stay anywhere from 50-75+ nights a year in hotels and the service at this resort rivaled the best we've experienced in Asia, the America's and in Europe. Keep up the great work!
