Great for kitesurfing, and lounging. The on-site tour guides are semi-independent but reliable and price-competitive. The facilities are very nice; great landscaping, comfortable restaurants, and nice, modern rooms. We...

“None of the rooms face the water; those a little closer and a bit larger command about a 15% premium, but all are nice.”

“The "Deluxe Room with Sea view" are gorgeous, very spacious and come with aircon and a fan, would definitely recommend splashing out a little bit extra if you can, although I didn't see what the "Standard Rooms" are like.”
