We chose this hotel because of the reviews and the availability of child care. If our girls were younger and needed more supervision, we would have used the kids club more because it was excellent. We made use of it so that we could go to the busy market and our eldest, near 11, enjoyed herself.
What struck me about this lovely hotel was couples and families from many countries could thoroughly enjoy themselves, but relatively quietly. Perhaps because of the smallish size of this hotel, the low key nature of the evening activities, the friendly staff or the soporific effect of the amazing climate.
The reviews of the food sometimes concerned us, but it was varied, fresh and excellent. Beautiful local fish cooked before you, with a wide range of vegetables or salads always available.
We had read, in these reviews, about having an go at cooking in the kitchen. Our eldest is a keen cook, we asked at reception and they could not have been more accommodating. The kitchens are amazing and the chefs absolutely outstanding with the children. This experience really made the holiday extra special. Only the trip to see the dolphins could compete.
Do go on trips, use Raj, he is genuinely friendly and helpful and offers good value. He is licenced to work on the beach, you can negotiate and you won't be disappointed.
Great hotel and staff. We had a couple of minor issues but we found they tried very hard to sort out and over compensated.
Finally we were unsure how a family of 4 would sleep as the information was not clear. The children had a junior size bed each and we had a super king size. Perfect.
We only wish we could go back.
