I am a paying customer, i expect to be treated atleast decently. But you cant get that in this resort, the Service is terrible, staff are arrogant. They will frown, make faces and sarcasticaly answer your queries. Waited for decades for our food and other requests. No TV, the one in the room is just for display. When theres no... More

We answered some of your comments in previous reviews, would you be one of the customers who try to get an extra person in the room without paying and bringing your own foods in the restaurant? A frown (also known as a scowl) is a facial expression in which the eyebrows are brought together, and the forehead is wrinkled, usually... More

We have parking space for three cars and several motorbikes in front of our bar, we keep this place as clean as we can but can't avoid dogs and cats passing by to do there duties outside the resort at the parking space.

we recently stayed at Johans so that I could get my girlfriend open water certified. I normally do not stay in budget hotels, but decided to give it a try. The rooms are in much need up renovations, but the view and the beach compensated for the rooms in that you spend very little time in the room. If you... More

Great location right on the beach, accommodation is a little basic, but clean and comfortable. The dive centre is great with daily dives to the wrecks around the bay. The restaurant and bar are great, the restaurant has an extensive menu at reasonable rates. The bar is good with friendly fun staff. This is one of my favourite places in... More

Stayed only for one night. The Wifi was not working (which is a must have for me), so I moved to another hotel close by. The general condition of the rooms is not so great. Old furniture, musty smell and practically no water pressure in the shower. The restaurant area is nice and the location is directly on the beach,... More
