We had a lovely stay here and it met all our requirements. The hotels in an ideal location and the rooms are to a high standard with all the necessary amenities. Laundry service is also available. We stayed in low season so there wasn't any other guests, but it's so close to the cliff and beach it was fine.

Visited during off season hence rooms were almost empty. Rooms are neat and tidy with a distant view of sea . Located along side helipad hence easy to reach. Staffs were friendly and welcoming. Food was also good. Apt for family trips.

Is very close to the sea and to the area of markets and restaurants where you can find fresh fish and rice terraces,... More

Sanctum spring is a very nice hotel facing the helipad which is a great location if you like to be close to the restaurants on the cliff but you do not want to hear the music coming from the bars. We stayed in a large suite which had a sitting area with flat screen TV and a fridge to keep... More

Nice hotel nice staff great location on helipad Rooms quite small but balcony nice with great views Breakfast disappointing as told that the main breakfast is for the yoga people which was a bit awkward Rooms clean towels provided but you can get a better hotel with pool at better price if you look around
