I booked this property through Booking.com for a 2 night stay with the family. As per my booking and the booking confirmation sent to me through Booking.com, the confirmation read and I quote, "Standalone hut overlooking the sea, features separate living and dining area, bathroom with bathtub." When we reached the property we found that there was no such hut... More

The restaurant is on the ground floor with mostly buffet in evenings. The food quality was good with reasonable variety. Not sure on the hygiene in the kitchen as we noticed ants in the milk ordered... More

From the outside this hotel looks good, however, I found my experience staying here to be a poor one. On arrival we were checked into room 220 & 221. There was a strong 'toilet' smell on our approach to the room which wasn't good, our rooms were okish but clearly needed some maintenance, having matching doors to each room with... More

The property is really beautiful, the sleep I got is one of the best I have had in hotels. The balcony faced the sea and if you switch off the air conditioner, you can easily hear the waves crash against the rocks below. The rooms were clean and bathrooms stocked almost fully with toiletry. Internet is provided only in the... More
