If youre looking for a 5 star resort with a million things to do then this is obviously not it, if youre like us, and just care about being in the tropical weather, clean room, good service and food, and fair value then I can recommend staying at the Whala hotel. My boyfriend and I were there in November during...

There are a lot of different reviews for hotel. If you are not a flexible easy to please traveler this hotel is not for you. For the best experience I would suggest staying in the upper level 2 room suites which are located in quieter area of the complex with their own big pool. This is a 3 star hotel...

The hotel has multiple pools, the rooms are all surrounding the pools but a short distance from the water. My room was large with a queen bed, a safety box in the room, and great view of the gardens. The hotel felt clean and safe, and the staff was very nice and even helpful with my kids, two parents traveling...

This was the best value regarding a holiday abroad for a long time. We knew it wasn't a massive hotel with all the bells and whistles when booking and we were happy with that and were very pleasently surprised with the overall experience we got. The hotel is clean, comfortable and a small scratch on a table is not going...

The rooms are just ok to crappy (cockroaches and mold). Do not have a medical emergency. Desk initially called a taxi...we needed ambulance...broken hip in our room due to slippery floor issue. The managers looked concerned, but did nothing to help. Desk staff seemed helpful, but I have become cynical...realizing now that I got different stories every day. Only helpful...
