Stayed at this hotel through contiki! was awesome, the staff are great and They're all very friendly! Food is good and the resort has a sweet atmosphere & vibe, especially before a half or full moon party! The rooms are clean and the resort is located right near the beach as well which is perfect for a good tanning sesh! Would recommend staying here to anyone! Great place for a group of friends as well as solo travelers wanting to meet new people!
Big ups for Shiralea! i will be back xoxox

The rooms are basic but clean, but facilities at this resort are fab. Staff are friendly, food is good and the atmosphere is great. I stayed here as part of a trip where there was a large group of us and they were vey relaxed about rules... basically there aren't any, despite this sleeping was not an issue. I rarely left the resort but the beach is only minutes walk away.

Lovely resort and a great price we stayed there for 4 nights and although not right on the beach it's only a 2 minute walk! Great food and a lively bar definitely a great place for travellers! Pool is lovely and deep and perfect for a chill, friendly staff who were up for a laugh, not really a family place but as I say perfect for travellers.

We stayed at this hotel on a tour for 3 nights. It is super cute, and I was nervous to sleep in a bungalow but they were actually pretty nice. Only a 5 min walk to the beach. They do your laundry for very cheap, and fold/iron everything for you which is nice to get done near the middle of your holiday. The staff all speak good English, as a lot of them are from Australia. It is a good place to spend a night or two at, however it is very far from the main area of town. I would recommend it for a night at least tho, it is a unique and cute experience and I liked it.

Really, really nice place, great staff, awesome relaxed, party atmosphere! Good location too, close to the beach and restaurants. Try an "attitude adjuster" and ring the bell! I'd definitely come back! Good wifi as well!

had a pretty good stay here the staff were really nice, the food was pretty tasty and reasonably priced, bungalows had all we needed...the only thing is that they have contiki tours stay here so it can be pretty hectic and loud. you can here the music and noise from the bungalows but they dont seem to go that late at night, if you are up for a party its probably perfect

Had such a great time staying at Shiraea, sitting by the pool in the sun and going to the beach were highlights. The food is amazing and the staff are wonderfully friendly. I would love to go back here, the island is beautiful and I wasnt happy about leaving. Would have liked to spend more time there exploring. I was on a contiki tour which made the whole experience very fun no matter where we were. The beach near by is very shallow but still very beautiful, and i preferred to swim in the swimming pool anyway.

Room Tip: All the bungalows are the same i believe
