The hotel is not located by the beach but it is still within walking distance ( about 5-10mins) walk. It has easy access to public transport (just outside the hotel). Security was good for a small budget/backpacker hotel, as there was a staff on night watch duty & the hotel sliding door was kept closed during the night.The hotel has... More

This place is very convenient if you are going for a good location and are on a budget. Do not expect some kind of beach front serene area, the place is along the road and across a tricycle/pickup point where it is usually crowded with people waiting for transpo. Nothing much to say about the room interiors, aircon is fully... More

My family and i spent 5 nights in this hotel. The rooms were moderately clean but it was full of mosquitoes and my 3-yr old daughter woke up the next day with multiple insect bites on her arms and legs. I'm doubting it was not mosquito bites as the bumps were bigger than usual - guessing it was bed bugs.... More

around 70 US per night for 3 people was a good price for it location, and also in the middle of Chinese new year. The rooms were simple, but well maintained and the staff were helpful enough. It is located right near D-mall and a short 5 minute walk to the beach. Restaurant, baker and supermarket just seconds away.

Spend two nights here, rooms were basic but fine, a/c pretty good. The bathroom was a bit rough. The gardens are very nice and very close to the bars and the beach. If your looking somewhere to lay your head after a long day then this is it!

Fantastic hosts and staff... Are so obliging and helpful. Room was spacious and clean with comfy beds and pillows. Great location - only 5 min walk to white beach and 30 seconds to the mall and supermarket. Loved our 5 nights here! Thanks for a great stay and nice breakfasts!!

Yes, I came back to Serendipity Resort last June 2009 with my family. Glad to see the new look of the Reception Area and they already have a mini-restaurant. I love their halo-halo! Hope to go back there next year! It was a relaxing trip.
