The villa room was lovely- spacious, comfortable, very clean, nicely decorated and thoughtfully equipped! We didn't make use of our balcony terrace but it was nice to have it there. We loved the plentiful breakfast especially the French toast and the fresh fruit. The staff were attentive and very kind allowing us to check out late to suit our needs.... More

Room clean and large with 2 beds - slightly outdated interior and sparse. Stayed in villa away from road and noise. Low season (Sept 2016) and not many people around. Restaurant attached but only tried the breakfast which was adequate. Beach across the road, nice to visit as quiet cove with just one beach restaurant. Okay for an overnight stay... More

Our two night stay was a delight. This hotel is far superior to others (more expensive) because of the owner Raelene's attention to detail and her excellent staff. The gardens are lush and relaxing, the pool a pleasant place to cool off and the rooms are comfortable, clean and nicely decorated with curtains that keep the morning sun out. Little... More

We stayed at the Moonstone Villas for three nights and cannot speak highly enough of this hotel. Real end our host was a wealth of information from everything to local beaches, markets and organizing the trip to the national park, nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were big and very comfortable and spotlessly clean. We ate at the restaurant... More
