Although we enjoyed our stay and could not fault the cleanliness of the room, the stairs killed it for us!! There was 1 lift and a rail gondola and 126 stairs to get to our room ot counting the foot paths!! The staff were lovely and helpful. Beds and pillows were bearable

The staff were friendly throughout the duration of our stay. They were helpful, considering the language barriers. It is a 5-10 minute walk to the shops and there is a shuttle service. We were given a free upgrade. Our upgrade gave us an amazing view but the downside was it took 5-10 minutes to get from the ground floor to... More

Love the hotel. Quiet. Friendly. Big room. Had the pool almost to ourselves every day. Mainly Chinese guests but they went out during the day. Highly recommended. We had a jacuzzi deluxe room. The jacuzzi function did not work but it was like a huge bath on the balcony. Secluded and a great escape from it all. Highly recommended.

My first experience here. My first impression was terrible. 7 PM on a weekday. My taxi dropped me off at the bottom a steep hill, bags and all. No one was there to help carry the bags up this hill. Finally the security guard came and helped. Once we made it to the stairs, then a bell hop joined in.... More

Unfortunately this place has seen much better times. Lift is essentials to this resort cause it has been built on a hillside. During our 7-days stay the lift has been out of function at least once a day. Umbrellas at the pool look disgusting and some are broken. If someone swims in the pool the water drips on the stairs...

Friendly and accommodating staff, spacious rooms, great little infinity pool with an amazing view... .. but! Definitely not a 4 star resort. More a solid 3.
