It has a relaxed and friendly environment and we enjoyed lying by the white sandy beach. I must agree with Alistair_8 who said that the... More

We stayed in the 2 bedroom beachfront villa which was sensational. The private pool was a great addition. Excellent food and facilities. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Good location and very accessible to key spots. Would definitely stay again.

We had a Beachfront Spa Villa, which was quite private and spacious, however, while the furnishing... More

We first arrived with a warm welcome from the front office staff, dined for dinner at oceans restaurant and the team that night were awesome. Next morning we woke, went to oceans for breakfast and were greeted with a bad attitude from the lady who clearly didn't seem to enjoy her job. That day were we told she was the... More

We have just returned from 7 fabulous nights at the Crown Beach Resort. The suite (we had a courtyard pool suite) was just beautiful, spacious, and just the perfect place for a honeymoon. The gardens and surroundings were magical, and the staff so lovely . The food was delicious, we especially enjoyed the smorgasbords, the best ever. So exceeded our... More

The bedroom had a big bed with firm mattress and nice sheets. The bathroom was massive with toilet and shower with great... More
