Whilst this hotel (resort is a little exaggerated) is lovely and very serene, with some very friendly hosts, the most important drawback is its location, a good walk from the main road and the beach, and then another walk to Lamai. And the road is quiet and fairly dark at night, so anything but ideal for single female travellers. You...

thank you for your review. But we don't recall you stayed with us, usually we do, and we are puzzled that you are a male and you (galantly) wonder about female travelllers. Additionnally, your comments are not much personnalized and are a mixture of different comments already made here. Could you contact us to let us know who you are?...

Good value for the money, could use some extra touches. Breakfast was good, the resort was helpful in arranging a motor scooter to be delivered to the hotel. Weather was raining much of the time I was there and it isn't in a great location as far as having lots of places around to go.

Thank you very much Bradley for your review we do appreciate and consider.

I've spent 5 days to Sallamai Resort with my boyfriend last month. It is the perfect place where to chill and enjoy a relaxing atmosphere. Rooms are well equipped, simple and tidy. Each room has a tailored decoration which makes them unique. It is on a side road but very close to the main road - only 10 minutes by...

My girlfriend and I where two backpackers, we decided to treat ourselves around Christmas to this "resort".

Hello Christopher, we are very embarrassed because you make (again) a wrong statement about your booking since no payment was done on line (check your credit card account) and with a little bit of attention when you booked you would have noticed that a deposit is to be paid at the hotel to confirm the booking and the balance paid...

My family of six stayed at the Sallamai in three rooms for eight days during the first part of January, 2017.

This meant, however, that we couldn't do too much around...

Bruno and Isabel could not have been nicer. No issue there. But I am going to be a bit critical because the other reviews are so stellar. The location is far from ideal. One needs transportation.

Hello Bruce thank you for your very interesting review and comments.
