Everything is perfect here! Great rooms with lovely modern bathrooms, great location right on the beach, delicious food and very friendly helpful staff. I felt very safe as a lone female and very welcomed. I extended my stay from 5 to 8 nights it was so good!

We lived Neela's from the moment we arrived, there is a warm friendly atmosphere especially from the manager who is the owners son. The room we had was large, comfortable and great air-conditioning. The restaurant food is well priced and tasty. The breakfast is included which is great and the sun loungers outside are perfect. You can put all food... More

The place itself is so charming. You can feel that the people there really like this place. Our room was small but the... More

We went for Neela's during lunch time. The food was very delicious. I ordered noodles with prawns which were cleaned perfectly unlike the other restaurants. The dishes were slightly more expensive than the other places on the beach but it is definitely worth it. Totally recommend it.
