There are a lot of activities close by and the receptionist is more than willing to book and organize the activity including the taxi fare. Locals play soccer and catch small fish during sunset on the beach and... More

1. After searching online, many hotels, finally we have settled for this hotel, we guess our choice was decently well choice one. 2. This hotel arranges the airport pick (approximately 50kms from the airport) for $40 single way (better than haggling with taxi drivers at the airport). 3. Just before entering this property, car has to drive through the potholed... More

Very relaxing place with direct access to the beach. The pool is there when the tide is low. Excellent restaurant, worth visiting even if you don't stay at the hotel. Nice rooms with air con. Not the luxury, but perfect for comfortable holidays. I would definitely return!
