What I liked:
1. The closeness of the pool to the beach front. The beach view is very soothing. It's kinda nice to walk down the long jetty leading out to sea too.
2. The 5 or 6 cabanas around the poolside with Thai cushions. Perfect for reading or napping or lunching.
3. Thatched villa roofs - Gives it a rustic charm.
What I didn't like:
1. Food was terrible and not exactly cheap. Nothing was palatable at Cinta Manis except ice-cream which was the only item that couldn't go wrong.
Major letdown for the whole getaway.
2. Cleanliness of the rooms could be better. It's nice to have balcony furniture but the cushion seats were stained with bird. Bathroom was very basic.
3. Balcony view was largely blocked by tree crowns, so not much "sea view" as they claim.
4. Skip the massage. The masseues and the ambience were not that good. You wouldn't miss anything.
1. Take a beachfront villa. Reduces the climbing up and down the hillside plus has the best view.
2. Bring lots of food (snacks, noodles) to avoid the restaurant.
3. Bring good company. It's generally a nice place to hang out with fun friends.
