Our booking was done by Farida who is a charming person and very efficient. When we arrived our rooms were already allocated and ready. The reception staff are ever smiling and very helpful. The food was excellent with a wide spread. The beach is absolutely brilliant. Highly recommend this hotel for families.

We spent 2 nights at this resort and were very pleasantly surprised with the level of service we received. We were a group of ten and on arrival, the checking in process was as efficient as could be. Having a Madafu ( coconut water) made a great change from the terrible tinned juices that one is welcomed with in this... More

Two large pools.one salty the other fresh. From the fresh water pool…guest can get a magnificent view of the Ocean. Quite sad that this one (fresh water pool) was supposedly reserved for specific people while the salty one for the local tourists. As if that’s not enough…At some point the hotel supervisor during breakfast had insisted we take specific tables... More

Attended an event at the Resort and ended up spending the night at the resort. The dinner buffet was terrible, no variety but I guess that had more to do with the event organisers rather than the hotel management. There were no other guests at the resort besides the people attending the event, so most of the rooms were empty.... More

After walking down the beach from where we were staying (ocean sport) to grab some lunch at garodina (this is an incredible lunch spot and a must do! Garodina salad, steak and pizzas are sublime as is the ice cream!) we decided to check out of our previous place and do the last night at Garoda. Whilst it is an... More

Amazing food. Incredible service. Unbelievable location. By far the best hotel ive ever been to. Set on the beach, the views are fantastic. The hotel itself is unreal, picture-esq is an understatement. Staff are always smiling and bubbly, just a brilliant place to go.
