We went to Temple Point beginning of May for a relaxing beach holiday and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is a big resort and when well booked for sure noisy and buzzing. But as only a few rooms were occupied, we had a relaxing time and the beach to ourselves. Rooms are spacious and practical. We had nice views on the... More

We visited this hotel during low season. We had the staff's full attention as we were few. They were all very friendly and helpful. The food was good and I particularly enjoyed the fried octopus. The beach is clean and quiet. You can enjoy water activities like snorkelling. The kids enjoyed swimming and played pool. The large swimming pool was... More

The reception and the staff was very friendly, the rooms were nice, spacious and clean with a very good bed. The meals were fresh with a good variety and excellent self service opportunity and the fruits were in plenty. You only need to provide a variety of channels for DSTV including Super Sport. Everything else was waooo...! My visit was... More

This hotel is absolutely wanting for hospitality. Service is absolutely slow and the food is way below par. The hotel does not compare with others in the same area (say, Hemingways).Would not recommend it to anyone.

A very nice hotel with a good scenery but the shower area was too small and also the food was not upto standard. The staff are very friendly. It has a big swimming pool and lots of activities. But overall a good place.
