A 400 bath ride has to save your day. Resort is at a hill secluded with a steep hill. Too many steps to get to room. Taxi drivers tend to refuse the lift because of it!! No light is available in the passage ways leading to villa. It's horrible at night with mice running around the resort and sounds of... More

I loved this resort. It's small and yes there are steps but it was so worth it! I am not mega fit but I was fine. Our room was right on the water so you could hear the ocean crashing into the rocks whilst you slept. Just beautiful. Pay the money for an ocean view worth every cent. The pool... More

Stayed for 4 nights earlier this week. I'm not sure how to sum it up. I booked the most expensive villa but got one that was very unsafe and very difficult to reach by rocky uneven un-barricaded staircase and vastly different than the villa shown on Agoda.com. After several requests and almost ready to check out after my first night... More

Stayed in a junior suite and had a very good experience. In the category "family three to four star resort" we give it 4 TA stars. Reasons for not giving it five: internet slow and not working at all at times, some construction going on and our AC had to be repaired twice. They moved us to an AC suite... More

This place is a hard nut to crack... I'm not really sure how to sum it all up. Our five nights were more like a roller coaster than vacation. Lets start with our room. We had originally booked a room with a sea view but got one right behind the dirty and noisy diesel generator. We immediately complained and were... More

we had thai salad and tuna salad and very nice shakes, but the flies, they were terrible we could not wait to get out if there! The service was okay and the view great, but to get there you had to wade through the building works and rubble!

We stayed 3 nights at the resort, in a family room, with an amazing view over the ocean from one of the bedrooms and the terrace. The family room was huge with a long entrance two big comfortable rooms and two nice bathrooms. Although the furniture in the room seemed to be old and randomly mixed together which made the... More

Beautiful resort, I loved my 4 night stay. It was so quiet, minus the odd wildlife noise which I thoroughly enjoyed. The pool is looking over the ocean, and the snorkeling accessible from the restaurant is perfect. There were quite a few ants in the bathroom, but they stuck to their corner and didn't bother us. The food was definitely... More
