We didn't end up staying here, and I'm glad we didn't if the customer service at the front reception is anything to go by! We went into reception twice asking for accommodation and twice we were told there's no vacancies despite large groups checking out right then and there. The lady didn't even bother looking in her book or at... More

We stay for family rooms for 2 nights and its good for the service, the location of the hotel but the room itself makes me feel stuffy even large and good. Air conditioner is not really working well but it is fine. Breakfast is good choice and staff is friendly.

They gave us their 'budget room without telling us' until the afternoon where it was too late to find other decent accomadation, we were unhappy so they told us to find another hotel without any help. the bathrooms smelt of urine, the showers did not work and our sink had mould in it. We asked four times for the toilet... More

Stayed with my family of 8 adults and 4 children for 2 nights. The front office staff were helpful when we requested for rooms close to one another. The rooms themselves were spacious, and clean. However, the rooms were poorly lit. There was no hot shower in all the three rooms that my family checked into. We called the management... More

This is a sprawling concrete botched together resort - it has no atmosphere at all, the rooms are old, worn, stain covered sheets and battered old bathrooms. Rooms are not tended to on a daily basis. I was disappointed not to get the island feel like so many of the other resorts give there is just too much concrete! The... More

Rooms are adequate for the money. Proximity to the jetty a plus. Nice private beach from which you can snorkel and see some reasonable coral and fish. Valuables can be stored at reception. Rooms only cleaned upon request, three requests in our case for one cleaning event. The staff worked hard to maintain the Resort, but it would benefit from... More

The hotel is at the end of coral bay, which is a lovely quiet beach with places to eat and drink. The broken coral can be a little painful under foot when going into the sea, but it's a small price to pay for all the fish, which makes it great for snorkeling right next to the shore! The hotel...

I travelled to this island due to the famous long beach, however it was quite pack during the season. Finally we plan to stay at Sharila. It is a great place in terms of snorkelling with kids because it has sort like private island in the resort. Although it is quite near to long beach, but a bit tiring because... More

Stayed here for a total of 8 nights. On the first day I thought I'd booked into the worst hotel ever but insisting on a change of room improved matters and with time the place grew on me. The hotel in many ways is weird and checking in feels like entering a time warp back to the 1970s but you... More
