Nice hotel in a quiet beach in front of the main pier. Bungalows are small but ok. Ours wasn't really clean: We had the glasses from the customers that stayed there before us and they were dirty with juice or some liquid and it made ants come to the room; neither bed wasnt done. They dont refill the water bottles... More

We stayed in both a family room with garden view and a double room with garden view. However, there is no actual garden, so the view consists mostly of the back of the other row of bungalows. Both rooms were spacious and clean. They included aircon and fan, terrace with seating, a small fridge, towels and toiletry supplies. One remark... More

A garden room is good, but the restaurant is not so good. The trouble with that is there is not many other places around to eat without hopping in a water taxi. If you want your room cleaned, be sure to put the key in the box in the morning - and it might be worth mentioning it also. Wifi... More

The rooms/huts are basic but clean with good shower. Located on the beech yards from millions of illumious fish. They have little porch areas to sit and look at the view. Absolutely beautiful. I don't like the sun or the sea or sitting around doing nothing normally until I came here! It was beautiful and the most relaxing place ever.... More

This hotel is much better than I expected. I paid the half amount in advance and only received an email, no voucher. But the boat office seven seas gave us our boat tickets. Once checked in, we did not see one cloud in 7 days. Perfectly sunny and at night a beautiful view of the stars. Our sea view family... More

We stayed here in a beach front chalet for 4 nights after moving from another resort who was well below standards. Abduls is very clean, with a big shower room, plenty of water for a hot shower, comfy bed, fresh clean linen and only metres from the waters edge with white soft sand - paradise. This is the best place... More

We stayed 2 nights ( would have stayed longer but fully booked) at Abduls chalet in a newly renovated room. It was very nice and clean. Quiet location and a very nice and clean beach. Good breakfast in the restaurant. We did not get our bag at the airport but after 2 days it showed up at Abduls in coordination... More

Abdul's is clean and family run, and is the best value for money on the whole island. The staff are great, and the food is delicious. Every night they run a barbecue, where you can get grilled fish or squid or chicken or lobster in a combo with salad, rice, and fruit juice. Awesome! Their beach is nice, and there... More
