We stayed at this hotel in February 2012 and are returning in February 2013 AGAIN! Can't wait, the mixture of pleasant staff and beautiful surroundings go along way to make a great holiday.
We keep reading all the problems people have had with the beach boys, we can't say this. We were lucky enough to meet Ali and Man-well who we have stayed in touch with, they showed us local cultures and took us to a local children's school which we now sponsor. They were like two body guards that kept the rest of the beach boys away. They took us on many trips including Haller Park, Wasini Island, and out to the coral reef. Please DO NOT BE PUT OFF they were great fun!!! Please try the bar on the beach (open Saturdays ONLY) called Kim 4 Love, used to be the two fishes hotel but is now shut, five minute walk down the beach.
The bar near the reception was very slow and had no atmosphere, in contrast the swim up bar on an evening was quieter with a great ambience, also great bar staff, one we named as Mr Leeds - great smile.
Food was great, all three restaurants served similar food of a very high standard - shame so much goes to waste when there are people less fortunate outside the hotel.
The beach, hotel grounds and rooms are extremely well kept, and the staff are helpful and friendly.
Can't wait to go back.
