My husband and me had been here for our honeymoon. The hotel property is superb. They have this long beach and back waters owned by the hotel. As we had gone in Dec there were any activities going on in the hotel. 1 night we had a pool party.. Food: The food is absolutely bland and sky high prices. We... More

The hotel is beautiful, the service is first class and very friendly. the beach bar had brilliant food but not open all the time. Unfortunately the buffet was disappointing in the main restaurant, but a la carte was first class.

I had been to this property and stayed for a couple of days. The property is very far from the main town and everytime u want to go out, you will have to call a taxi that too yourself. The room smells like anything and the staff are only attentive towards French Guests. They don't want Indian guests it seems.... More

Terrible hotel, old, not well maintained, the only thing that is perfectly clean is the swimming pool. Tennis courts are ina terrible state. Rooms are very basic, and old, foot stool is a table for the telephone, only 4 local television stations, plugs are not standard and they can't provide adaptors. You hardly see any cleaning staff. Service is poor.... More

I stayed at the hotel for 2 weeks and fully enjoyed my stay. The hotel is a nice property, though it needs improvement in terms of service and food quality. The rooms are nice as far as size is concerned but housekeeping needs complete overhaul. The hotel is perhaps understaffed and staff not trained enough. Soap and shampoo will not... More

I was there for 3 weeks and thoroughly enjoyed it. All inclusive is the best as there is no worry about taking money anywhere. There was a lovely selection of foods which are all cooked very well, sometimes if you don't get there early there isn't any food but the chiefs reassured us that food will come and it did... More
