Had a good stay but still wondering about the room rates. We stayed from Friday to Monday during a quiet weekend and there were hardly any other guests. The bar and restaurant staff were fantastic and the pool nice and clean.
The food was definitely very good - we had fillet steak and the Fish of the day as well as the dijon fish fillet but after two nights we ventured somewhere else as the menu is limited - and very hard to read in the dark light of the restaurant.
The rooms were ok size wise but very dark and although there where mosquito nets around the 4poster bed the way they are fixed at the back means that there is plenty of space for the mossies to get in.
Due to the lights on the front porch of each room there are so many mossies when u go in it is impossible to keep them out of the room or the net- each porch eould would benefit from extra nets a lot and maybe the odd spray session in the room. I also had to ask for fresh towels everyday even though they were pretty obviously in need of changing due to the sand and dust all around. For 150 dollars per night (we got a 10% discount which was nice but then had to pay 5% bank charge for visa at check out) I would expect new towels as well as soap at least. The Aircon worked very well but I was confused about the whole television with DVD only set up.
The bar area was great and the seating in the garden in front of the rooms a nice touch.
Think the price should include wifi although probably have to expect that it is still pretty unreliable. We experienced no power cuts - which was nice as no Aircon would have been a nightmare.
this is a nice place to stay but the room rates are not justified. The restaurant and bar prices are very reasonable though! And once again the staff was fantastic!
