The hotel is located near the beach. There were many Chinese customers when I had a stay.They were half naked at the bar drinking Chinese alchole. I have seen many Chinese at night and morning but didn't see them at noon. So the beach is not occupied at all and were able to enjoy the quiet beach. There are small...

The people who work at reception are nice and friendly. The room was big but the bed was hard as a rock and during the first night we woke up being bitten several times by mosquitoes (in the room). The pools are green, some less and some so green you can barely see the pool floor. Was told by security...

Stopped here on our first night and were upgraded to the villas which was a nice surprise. Large rooms with outdoor shower and huge bath/spa tub were a nice touch. Older resort that looks as if it is getting some needed maintenance in the off season

If you are looking for a quiet place, far from perpetual touristic attractions on the Beach , this could have been the one. Facilities are ready (gym, restaurant, bar... Except nobody is there and the whole thing looks almost abandoned). If the staff wasn't SO inefficient, so unable to understand or speak a word of English, if the breakfast wasn't...

Not too far from airport by the beach. Room is a bit old. Furniture&wall needed to be clean. Room is so humid, when you sleep you can feel that yourself is sticky and wet. Quality of food from room service is bad. Seafood fried rice was oily with 2 prawns and 2 squid. Taste Sucks with 1 hour waiting.
