Staying at this hidden gem was an absolute delight. This hotel had it all! Upon arrival, we were greeted by Ing, after meeting Ing she was like my go-to for everything and she never let me down! Her English was truly amazing and she always went above and beyond to make our stay so much more memorable. I feel having someone you can truly connect with at your hotel always makes your stay that much better. Thank you, Ing! Other than Ing, the breakfast was out of this world! I never missed a breakfast here, and I will never miss it at my next stay! I read other reviews on here that the beach wasn't actually a beach... Wrong, I am a beach person and the beach that the scent has to offer is super cute and not busy! I really love the scent hotel and recommend anyone who is thinking of staying here to please, stay here. You will not be disappointed.

This is our second stay at this secret gem. 100/100. Perfect in every way. The staff are amazing nothing is a problem. Nina on reception is most welcoming. The breakfast is so good, you want more and more. We have travelled the world, stayed in 4/5* hotels there is no difference in this little Gem. All the staff are so attentive. If you have a choice DO IT. Cannot wait to return. Thank you the SCENT HOTEL for making our stay memorable

The scent is a small classy, boutique hotel with all the amenities of a bigger hotel with less people and more privacy. Although a bit more expensive, they went the extra mile for us. We had a late flight on the day of our check-out. They securely stored our bags, allowed us to use the pool and beach and even provided us with a room to shower before our flight! Very impressive customer centric experience.
