We went to Home Hotel for 5 nights in September 2016, drawn there by great reviews and a competitive price, and looked forward to relaxation, sight seeing and time on the beach. The sun shone every day (average 32C), the nights were warm and sultry, and the hotel was everything we hoped for. That said, if I were feeling really... More

What an amazing stay! After our 20 minute taxi journey from the airport which was late at night, we were welcomed by our wonderful hosts - Ben and Gordon! Even though the kitchen had closed, they offered us hot food after we arrived which was much needed especially after a long day of travelling. The hotel is in a great... More

it was a delightful and tremendous experience. The pool, the hosts, the visitors, the place. Loved it. The beach and shop was less than 5 minutes away and the hosts were absolutely helpful and helped with any query we had. They really did make it feel like home for myself and my friend.

What a fantastic find this delightful hotel is: close enough to tien to feel 'buzzy' but far enough too to engender a real sense of tranquility.
