We booked a premium poolside villa. The room was a bit tired but clean. All the staff were friendly. We had to leave as this resort is spoiled by the karaoke bar close by. It is broadcasting karaoke at a level that makes your ears bleed. the karaoke starts around eight hours n the morning and finishes around two in... More

I enjoyed my stay very much. My wife and I spent 4nites at the resort. The grounds are well kept and at nite lit up nicely. Our garden villa was roomy, clean and quiet. The pool was great for young and old with lounge chairs and towels aplenty. The beach is less inviting. You can kayak and enjoy the view.... More

There is no beach here for swimming - kayaking only. If you like to swim in the sea like we do go elsewhere. Personally, I didn't travel 7000 km to swim in the pool. Poor and inconsistent wifi connection anywhere on the premises. The hotel is very remote and the outside area, Cordova, is slums and doesn't look safe. Anywhere... More

You get what you're paying for so it would be best to set your expectations at a reasonable level since our were set high. The property has so much potential. The units are detached and clean and the grounds are relatively well kept. Our biggest diss appointment was with the beach. It's about a 20-25 meter stretch of private beach... More

Cordova Village Reef Resort is an excellent hotel for anyone who wishes to relax in peace and quiet. Each room is a self-contained villa that is cleaned daily. The setting is by the sea and the complex has a large swimming pool that is cleaned daily. The price is very reasonable and includes a buffet style breakfast. The downside was... More

The hotel is in an idylic little haven. The Villa's are individual, spacious, adequately equiped. The pool is great to relax in or use for good swim lengths. The beach front is clean, with a secluded bay area. Great if all you are looking for is to relax. The staff are great, very friendly and helpful. On the downside -... More

We had an excellent stress-free vacation with Cordova Reef Resort. it's the perfect place to unwind with its seaside location and tranquil surroundings. All of their staff are well-mannered, very accommodating, and extremely nice. The price was good, villas are clean and complete, and the food is delicious. I highly recommend the place.

What a beautiful groups of seaside villas with best sea/beach views in such an excellent price! Though there is not much activities organized for fun, but what I needed that time is just accommodation and privacy. It was a perfect match! People who serve here are very nice people with professional attitudes and decencies! Just 3 more words for it,... More

As during our first visit, staff were overall very friendly and ready to help with any request. GM very accommodating, front desk Imee is potential to the resort. You do notice a difference between the staff that were excellent compared to those that were just OK. Thanks again to all those that helped make our stay special! new management.
