We stayed at Carana Beach Hotel for our honeymoon in July 2018 and were EXTREMELY disappointed by the experience. We booked well in advance and were offered a villa with a pool with direct sunlight in a private location. When we arrived we were placed in a room that had shade

From start to finish, this is the place of dreams. With a pool write by a secluded, almost always virtually empty, beach and plenty of sun lounges for everyone it truly is heaven. The apartment was very contemporary, clean and spacious. Great sized bathroom too. Restaurant food

lovely beach location, excellent service and staff. Quiet location so if you're looking to get out and experience the night life then its not for you , however it was perfect for us. Chalets clean and well presented, slight gradients on site for those less able bodied.

Dear VOyager7876 Thank you for sharing your views regarding your recent stay and we apologize for the incidents that occurred. Our welcome drinks are usually served upon arrival, and in your case it seems we had some delay. This should not have happened and we do apologize. As we are surrounded by Nature we try and keep the gardens as lush as we can and minimize cutting of trees where possible, our team was pleased to accommodate you with another chalet that allowed a full view of the Ocean which you preferred. I wish to clarify that CaranaBeach is a 4 star establishment, we do strive for 5 star service & a 5 star location, however our official ranking is 4 star. Our housekeeping team does clean the rooms daily and linens are replaced every 3 days as mentioned in the bathroom. This is part of our sustainable goals in minimizing water consumption. However, guests are welcome to request daily changes should they prefer. We are delighted to note that you had chosen CaranaBeach once again, especially for your renewal of vows. There was certainly a miscommunication regarding the cost of the gazebo, as this is at an additional fee and the wedding arch is complimentary. Nevertheless, this was not charged considering the circumstances. Our team had checked the tidal movements on the day and high tide was expected around your vows timing. We suggested it best to shift location however, this was not your preference which we respected so we continued on. Dinner was no longer possible on the beach due to the tide, its very understanding that this is a disappointment however, there are some things that remain out of our control and we try our best to find alternatives.
