I couldn't have asked for a better stay than this. I arrived with an extremely bad foot infection (couldnt walk), however the owner helped me bandage my foot, organize transport to the doctors & even drive and collect pizza from outside the hotel, how many places would do that for you? The place itself it fantastic, with a great pool... More

Great set of villas. We stayed here during the Full Moon. It is perfect proximity as it allows easy access to the party by taxi and is far enough to avoid having sick on your doorstep! Beaubo is the owner (I believe) And she makes the hotel what it is! Pre-Full Moon party was awesome. Highly recommended!

Nothing bad to say about this place. Clean rooms. Good air con. Really nice pool over looking the sea. Great place to stay for half moon party, pre drinks, music and face painting in the bar the taxis are booked for you to go to the jungle. Nothing to do near by this place so I wouldn't think coming here... More

My husband and I stayed here for several nights in early September, and really enjoyed our stay. We had booked a garden view villa, but were upgraded to a beach view on our last night (more on that later!) First Villa is run by a family, and they were super friendly. We loved Bobo, who seemed to run the office/customer... More

Loved everything about this hotel! We booked a bungalow with a sea view and although it was small you don't really notice as on your doorstep is the pool and then the beach. Incredible views to wake up to! Stayed for the full moon party in August and was so much fun. Bobo really makes the place and gets everyone... More

The room had everything we wanted, it was clean comfortable with daily service everyday. The food and the drinks to the restaurant of the villa is of good quality,... More

Stayed here for the half moon party in July and it was a lot of fun. Bobo (hotel manager) throws a big pregame where she paints everyone's faces. It was a very social atmosphere and very easy to meet other travelers. We met other guests at the pregame who we then went to the half moon party with and stayed... More

We have just stayed at first villa for 3 nights over the half moon party and were welcomed with kindness and happiness in the form of Bobo at the front desk. She learnt our names immediately and was keen to help us in any way she possibly could. If you come here for not other reason but her and the... More
