A very nice resort where we had a really good time! But I think you don’t want to be there when it is crowded. The Port Ghalib resort (garden view rooms) and the Siva resort (sea view rooms) are one resort. Staff is very friendly in general; they all are taking good care of you. The restaurant and food are...

The amenities / facilities were definitely NOT five star and it was certainly not ALL inclusive.
