La piroque is a resort with good infrastructure but bad service. The resort is currently being renovated. So the infrastructure looks fine. The beach is beautiful. The bungalow room had all what a hotel room needs, except for a comfortable bed. The choice of tv channels is poor, but we didn't need the tv. The gardens are well kept. They only should collect the coconuts more often, so they don't fall off (we nearly got hit by one). The breakfast buffet was very good. The buffet food is okay. It has a good variety. The meat dishes usually didn't meet our taste. The choice and quality of breads was outstanding.
For the quality category they want to be (4 stars superior) and prices they ask (Central European level) the service really doesn't hold up. The staff generally doesn't make an effort to be friendly and they are definitely not welcoming. The worst are the front desk and the water sports centre. Never seen such an unprofessional and unfriendly front desk. The staff from the water sports centre always give you the feeling of annoying them every time you'd like to benefit of one of the offered activities.
Overall our stay was ok. But we wouldn't recommend la piroque to any of our friends or go again. We just expected more attention to details.
