We just returned from a lovely three day stay at Minang Cove. We stayed in a bungalow on the hillside which were basic but clean and comfortable. The setting was so beautiful we spent very little time in our room. Our room had a double bed and a bunk bed for our children aged 6 and seven. All bugalows have an ocean view. The hotel is situated at the base of two large mountain peaks which we never tired of looking at at...simply stunning! The beach is quite small but with soft white sand and clear water. A pier extending from the hotel provided a perfect place for watching the beautiful sun set each evening and our whole family had a great fun jumping off the end of the pier which was deep enough even at low tide. There is coral in front of the hotel but found the snorkelling a little disappointing as there were not as many fish as we expected from reading other reviews. We found the best area to snorkel was underneath the end of the pier. Nicholas (the manager) was extremely welcoming and friendly as were all the other staff during our stay. They did their very best to provide vegan/vegetarian meals for our family and though there was not a lot of variety with the meals they were tasty and we enjoyed them. All in all an excellent getaway for a our family and we would not hesitate to recommend Minang Cove.
