Hotel refused to change $200. Said it was too much money for them.
Hotel pool closed for 'private booking' each afternoon we were there.
There was no sign of a bar and no wine list at dinner.
Otherwise good value and reasonable food.

Dear Mr Richard,

Greetings from Ideal Beach Resort!

We thank you for choosing Ideal Beach Resort as your holiday destination! Firstly, we would like to thank you for taking the time to share your “Ideal” experience with us. In reference to your comment regarding the money exchange, we checked with our staff and turns out that a trainee was present during the time. Therefore, he was not certain about the limit of money that is allowed to be changed. We would like to sincerely apologize for the inconvenience it has caused you.

During the low season, our resort takes group outings (on weekends) which is why the pool was blocked. However, beginning from the high season (20th December) onwards, all day outings will not take place and will only commence after 3 months.

Regarding the bar, it is currently under renovation and will be done by early next year. In reference to your comment about the wine list, our restaurant does house various wines. Unfortunately, our staff did not show the wine list. We are deeply apologetic for the incompetence of our staff and please ensure that this will not happen again. We hope to see you soon. Have a great day!

Warm regards,
Natasha Uma

"We were searching for the perfect beach resort for weeks, but after having found Ideal Resort, we had no second thoughts. We were welcomed with a refreshing welcome drink and the warmth of the service staff was sincere and commendable. The staff was supportive with the team activities and we absolutely loved the deck on the beach. The cool and gentle breeze made a perfect ambiance to unwind ourselves. Clearly, the management has close paid attention to all our stated and unstated needs and has been extremely passionate in fulfilling it to the best of their abilities. Based on our experience and the courtesy extended to us, we will definitely be back for more. The food and the spread was awesome and we will definitely recommend Ideal Beach Resorts to our acquaintances in future."
