Their studio rooms don't have windows or any kind of ventilation system and apparently they use some kind of chemical to keep insects out of the rooms. Because of that, our studio room had an unpleasant, stuffy odor and my guess is that other studio rooms probably have similar issues. The room was otherwise clean with a working AC. The... More

I had a sea view room booked for 1 week which overlooks the garden/pool area and the nearby ocean. The balcony is wide and comfortable with a great panoramic view of the surrounding area heading towards the ocean. The room was simple yet comfortable, light, clean and exactly what I was looking for. Getting to and from the beach, be... More

I stayed here in September with a few friends and we all had the sea view rooms with balcony. They were definitely worth the extra money. They were clean and spacious and great value for money. The pool was great, a perfect temperature and I spent most of my week there. The food was good too, the only downside being... More

Stayed here for 2 nights and payed a little extra for the sea view unfortunately forgot my binoculars. The pool area was clean and modern but they decided to empty and refill it over the whole our second day (surely overnight would be the time to do this) The water pressure was weak and the sink blocked easy oh and...

I stayed here with a tour group for 2 nights over Christmas Day and Boxing Day. My girlfriend and I had a superior double bed room facing the reception/main road side of the resort. The room was pleasant with a tidy modern feel to it. The room had suitable space, 'a hard but comfy enough' mattress, aircon, a small fridge,... More

I really don't know how it is possible to live in basement and without window even for 700 bath. Room was very dark, with musty smell and very tired looking. I was very happy that we stayed only 1 night. But ocean side rooms looked very nice. Positive:quick walk to Lamai main street and beach, nice pool area.

I normally wouldn't book a hotel with such questionable reviews for a holiday however I was forced to stay here on a tour I did with G Adventures. Not only is the hotel a ten minute walk up a hill from the beach, bars and action, but it's service is extremely poor to the point where it's just plain disrespectful.... More

This hotel was booked as part of a tour booking, but I would had definitely booked it myself if I needed to. The rooms were well presented on arrival and very clean (great air con). Also, standard complimentary water was provided, as well as a fridge and safety deposit box in the room. Beach/pool towels were also provided in the... More

We booked a balcony room over looking the pool which had beautifull views of the local scenery and sea. Room was lovely and clean with a small mini bar (reasonably priced). 2 bottles of free water was supplied every day also. Shower was not particularly powerful but worked ok. There was always an odd smell though after each time the... More

I stayed at this hotel for 3 weeks in a Deluxe verandah poolside room.. Nice ocean views, and nice sitting outside in the evenings.. Staff were friendly, rooms were cleaned daily and left spotless... Beautiful pool area, kept spotless. Short walk to Lamai beach, and close to lamai centre... Highly recommended, at a good price..
