It was our first time in Villa Mahal. We heard its recommendation through conde nast traveller. The location of the hotel is beyond words. Its quite marvelous. We stayed both in moonlight deluxe and pool room. Both of the rooms location was very good. But comparing steps to the beach pool room may be preferable by some. Rooms are comfortable and clean. In moonlight deluxe room, there was a light colored carpet which was dirty due to extensive use. Might be better to not have carpets at all. Also all of the rooms should have espresso machine. The beach setting is very very good and very private. The food is tasty but the breakfast menu can offer more muesli varities such as bircher musli and crunchy mueslis. All of the personel are very friendly and welcoming. Other than that you won't regret of your choice one bit.
