The hotel is nicely situated in a massive area of land near the bay and the sea which sets up the stage for a lot of outdoor activities. There's a lot of sports activities the residents can use but alas if you find a flock of non-residents parachuting in a bus you are totally out of luck. The pool is... More

Large spacious rooms and bathrooms with a sit out area which is just lovely. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The day wasn't compete without a dip in the excellent pool.... More

I stayed at this hotel for two weeks in March this year. The customer care from most staff is wanting, but if you are willing to tip up front the staff are more likely to make eye contact and give you the time of day. I had read reviews about this hotel on Trip Advisor before I went and it... More

Nice place with friendly staff. Rooms are on cabana style, but bit old. They got a nice swimming pool with long baby pool. Many recreation activities available like pool, table tennis, badminton, tennis and mini golf. Great privacy and good food too.

You are given a traditional welcome and offered excellent hospitality as you enter the sprawling resort, with landscaped dotted lagoons, garden view rooms. The large lucid blue pool is instant rejuvenation for any weary soul. All accommodation is fully air-conditioned... More

It's an old hotel resort but great place to relax. Beach access is opposite side of the hotel so you need to cross the road to access beach. there were variety of food for the buffet and it was tasty.
