Stayed at the hotel for three nights and had a great time! The best aspect of this hotel is the staff - extremely pleasant and helpful! The rooms are spacious and have a nice patio space. I was, however, a bit disappointed by the quality of the spa (the staff are great, but the ambience of the massage rooms could... More

A very nice hotel with decent rooms. The staff were very helpful and friendly with their service. However I was a little disappointed in the food. The activities they have are great for the whole family such as beach volleyball. On the whole it was a great hotel.

This was an amazing hotel. The rooms are nice and big with a nice big private verandah. Although none of the rooms have a sea/pool view. The odd number rooms look into the garden and next door tropical village hotel boundary. The even number rooms have a small garden and car park view. The food was amazing and although we... More

The personalized service, great location, closeness to the beach makes the resort an appealing holiday destination. The mvua spa treatment, romantic dinner on the beach treat made my stay memorable. Kudos for great memories created.
