My girl friend and I have been return guests. Last December we had stayed at Tribal Hills for three nights, this time we booked three nights, again, looking forward to a quiet, relaxing stay at Tribal Hills.
The resort is close to the beaches, but on a steep slope, so transportation to and from the resort to the beaches is crucial. Although the resort offers 3 round trips a day, the service never really worked without problems and waiting and we did have a serious, quite intimidating experience with locals harassing us during a pick up at 10 pm at White beach one day. The regular shuttle arrived 1 hour late.
We tried the restaurant the very first night, waited 1 and 1/2 hours for our food, which was very average this time, and were presented a bill that was 20% higher than the prices advertised in the menu. After that we only had our free breakfasts there.
We spent several hours by the pool, but not once the staff at the pool bar was present to serve us drinks or turn on the Jaccuzzi etc. Staff seemed pretty busy to entertain themselves and the management obviously did not mind that. The music that was playing at the pool to entertain the staff playing billiards was so loud, that swimming was not very relaxing, either.
All in all, we were so disappointed that we will try another place next time.
