We booked this hotel because we had stayed at other Centara properties but were somewhat disappointed. I should say from the start that we are in our middle seventies and though reasonably fit we found the excess of stairs and steps very hard going. It was not easy to get onto the beach because there is a fringe of impenetrable bushes which the town will not let them remove. The quickest way into the town was along the beach but this involved fording a river in bare feet and the shuttle bus only made 2 trips and 1 return each afternoon. There is a huge number of Eastern Europeans in the hotel, in fact in 2 weeks we did not meet any other English nationals.
