Great if you only had a two week hoilday and want to get the most amount of surfing done!! excellent location with the best break on the coast outside your hotel, not too crowded. Reef is not sharp at all, great for trying your first reef. Waves were perfect a frames and barreling occassially. if your goofy you will be... More

We found the serving staff to be nothing short of courteous, thoughtful and very helpful. Unfortunately they couldn't make up for the disgusting attitude of the management, particularly the woman in charge. We were so offended by her attitude for no apparent reason that we decided to leave a great location and seek a much more enjoyable and suitable estabishment... More

We stayed for three nights in this hotel. After asking the staff to re-clean the room, give us fresh pillows and the rooms a good airing, the hotel is pleasant and relaxing. We enjoyed our stay but beware - do not let the staff book any excursions as they overcharged us by over 50%. The local tut tut drivers are... More

Friendly staff, terrible bed bugs! All guests suffering from bites. Overpriced, not value for money. However, great private beach!

We stayed at a suite in this hotel which was perfect for our needs. The staff are respectful and polite but friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are cleaned daily if you ask one of the 'Room Boys' to clean. There is wifi in reception at the hotel but it depends upon the weather as to how... More

The beach and the view is excellent and the staff is very helpful and friendly. The rooms are overpriced. Please pluck the coconuts regularly as the guests are vulnerable for injuries as most of the sun bathing chairs are placed under them. Food is good.

The website of this hotel is misleading. It has put some nice pictures but in reality only a few of the rooms resemble this. And the place is not spread out like in the website but quite cramped in certain areas. The website says it is a boutique hotel but it is a far cry from the real boutique hotels... More

Its a great place if you love nature. The staff is very friendly. The rooms in the old wing are not very neet, especially the bathroom. But the food is good. There isnt enough parking during days when there is a function. Rooms are quite cheap though. There are rabbits, birds and three dogs and one can even climb a... More

This hotel is great for surfers. Excellent location for that. However, the bed bugs were not nice. And sand flies. And mosquitos. And barking dogs. The waiter was constantly asking for orders. Breakfast took too long to arrive. Probably best for the serious surfer to hang out in. Definitely ask for a room in the new building. We moved there... More
