I read previously posted reviews and am glad that I took no notice of the poorly rated ones. Fishermans Village is an incredible location; a mixture of old and new shops, so many restaurants to choose from and a beautiful clean beach that goes on forever. All restaurants on the right side overlook the beach/sea.
The condo far exceeded our expectations; first, it is one of the rare few accomodations whose photos are exactly what you get; very large lounge with cable tv and good wifi. Kichenetter is equipped with everything you need for simple meals (why would you want to cook when you have so many restaurants!) The bedroom is huge, king size bed with excellent bed linen, quality mattress and pillows. Wet Room with hot cold water.Towels changed daily if you choose not to be eco friendly.
The building is situation on the Fishermans Village road that runs pararell with the whole length of beach, and is about 10 metres from the sand. Where the condo's are situated (one end of Village) you do have a hotel between and the sea and you can use their open entrance to walk onto the beach.
Someone wrote a review that their view was blocked by this hotel. Yes that is true, however you are paying an incredibly low, low price compared to a hotel room and getting a huge apartment, a daily maid inc in the price if you would like her to clean and a location that is easy walking distance.
If you want beach front accomodation then expect to pay for it! From the condo to the sand is about 20 long strides.
We stayed for 2 weeks and found nothing to complain about at all. We have been traveeling for 6 months all over Asia staying in everything from a hostel in Australia to the 5 star Crown Plaza in Singapore. Roys' condo's definately should be rated as a 4.5 star accomodation.
