“romantic, beautiful.. family orinted hotel ...”
Reviewed February 6, 2011

If you are looking for quite romantic place to spend your time then I would recommend this hotel. Which is about 40-50 mins from airport and away from the night life. We stayed at family villa with swimming pool and it was convenient to our needs. The villa’s area is so beautiful like walking into a secret garden and offers privacy. The hotel divided into 2 parts the villas with swimming pools are cross the road in which we need to walk to reach the other part that is located over the sea.
The villa’s rooms and bathrooms are well organized and clean. The hotel’s staffs are so helpful in everything they would offer their assistance and make sure of our comfort. The hotel offers room services, spa, transportation with charges, and free bicycles to roam around the area. You can as well walk as the area is beautiful to walk and enjoy the serenity of the surrounding nature. The area around the hotel doesn’t offer much the nearest nightlife area is about 10-15 mins by car. The breakfast might need lil improvements however; overall I enjoyed the beach, the sun and the sea.

I would recommend the hotel can have more beach activities that will be nice …

We booked this resort months ago, and after paying 50%, we got a confirmation that our rooms was guaranteed. We choose the two connecting family jacuzzi villas because of its location, near the restaurant and close to the beach and main pool. (see hotel map).

On arrival, they 'upgraded us" (like I read in other reviews) to another room, that was the family pool villa, which was in the other part of the resort, you have to cross a large, busy road. Maybe for them it is an upgrade, and yes this type of room was more expensive, but we didn't like it at all! Our kids could not walk to the reception (computer) or pool by themselves, because of the busy road, and it was also much hotter (if possible), then near the beach. Airco didn't work, so it was 30degrees in our room, and even warmer in the bathroom. Ok, there was a private pool, but we liked the main pool and beach more, as this private pool was only 1,5mx4 and it was way to hot there.
We complained of course, and got the right rooms we booked after 24 hours. They seemed not to understand that we preferred the other rooms.

After that first day, we enjoyed our stay there.
Nice clean, quiet beach, very good food at the restaurant, we loved the family jacuzzi villas, possibilities to have diner nearby (Big John and Nikki Beach), free internet.

Slightly negative: prices for drinks are on the high side!

So, if they keep the reservations as they are, this is a great place!

I recently got married through Faraway Weddings and wanted somewhere to go the night before the big day with my Mum and friends. I booked rooms directly with the hotel and got a discount for throwing the word wedding in J
I booked a Pool Villa for one night and three superior Jacuzzi rooms for my friends for two nights.
We arrived and the staff knew instantly who we were and made us all feel very welcome – we were greeted with cold towels and small drinks, the rooms were ready within in minutes. All rooms were absolutely beautiful!
The Pool Villa was fantastic, room with sofa, four poster bed, huge flat screen TV and good sized wardrobes. The Bathroom was excellent with the deepest bath I’ve seen.
Beach was gorgeous as was the sea – pool was rather small but on a beachside location it’s not really needed.
Food was good and reasonably priced. For anyone getting married at Faraway it’s an excellent place to stay – If I was holidaying I wouldn’t stay for more than a few days, a week at max – The area is pretty quiet and personally I like a bit more nightlife!

The hotel cottages are set in gardens with stagnant water ,ideal for mosquitoes the staff are charmless and very difficult to get any attention. The food is bland the drinks very over priced plus they add a 10 percent service charge for zero service.
the beach bar attracts thousands of insects at night so you are never quite sure what you are eating!
