We were at this hotel in August 2015 and like the last review we didn't put a comment on until we heard from our tour operator which we have has been sorted now. I have given it a 1 and feel that this is generous. It is classed as a 5 star hotel but believe me it is more a... More

We stayed at this hotel in September and the reason for the late review is that we have been awaiting a response from our tour operator following our complaint (which ran to about 4 pages) and we have now received compensation. Given the glowing reviews I've since read I've decided to limit my written review and let my photographs tell... More

The hotel may not really be 5 star as per the rating but the experience certainly is. We were there the last week of August / first week of September when the turtles were hatching, it was amazing. We went on an all-inclusive basis and the food was great, not repetitive as you normally find. The staff were lovely, the... More

The first thing this hotel should do is remove the five stars it displays. It's not even four star. It is a decent 3 star, in a quiet (that is miles from civilisation) area to the west of Rethamon town. It's about 15km to the main town and about 5km to the first built up areas with decent shops etc.... More

Although it isn't a 5 star hotel by English ratings it did tick a lot of boxes for us. The food was great and plentiful and the staff were very happy and helpful. The beach was only a few steps from the pool. Overall we really liked it.
