I stayed here with my wife and we took the last cabana which opened right onto the beach. The room was not a 5 star but then if that's what you want then go find another place. Blue Note is a very simple and surreal small hotel which caters to adventurers, young couples, singles and small families who want to... More

This basic bar provides the most stunning views over the Indian Ocean. I did not stay at the hotel, however, the bar is open to the public and was an ideal place to sit and watch the sunsets. The drinks and are reasonably priced and in par with other bars in the vicinity. The staff, especially the lady who runs... More

Room is quite well equipped with fridge ac and fan. Bed is hard. No cleaning until you had to ask. Breakfast start after 8:00 very late if you have to go early for diving course. No lime juice but lime on sambol. Beef steak was great. Shark was tasteless. It was ok but not so good as the reviews.

The staff were friendly and the service was really good. The food was ok, not dreadful but not awful either. There are several shops and restaurants nearby too. Although the... More
