Positive Reviews

Beautiful beach area

The hotel's private beach impressed guests so much that many of them ended up as repeat visitors. The magnificent coral reef is perfect for diving, and the cleanliness of the surroundings is why most beach goers found themselves spending the entire day there enjoying the beauty of it all.

Magnificent views

Since all the rooms offer a sea, pool or garden view, guests said they spent plenty of time soaking up the lovely sights from their private balconies. The remarkable landscape and exciting on-site activities also meant they spent most of their time at the hotel, instead of exploring off-site.

Professional, yet friendly staff

From the bar manager to the reception and housekeeping staff, guests found them to be pleasant, accommodating, and genuinely interested in ensuring that everyone had just what they needed for a great vacation. They created a warm and friendly environment leaving guests totally relaxed.

Negative Reviews

Limited food options

Guests did not think all that much of the variety and quality of the food they were offered during their stay. They would have preferred to have a wider variety to choose from and felt that the dishes could have better prepared.

Rooms are dated

The furniture and decor in the rooms and the hotel, in general, was regarded by visitors to be a little outdated. They felt it was time for something new and modern, and said a facelift may just be a good idea.
