We booked a garden villa for our honeymoon inc airport transfers. We were collected as promised and upon arrival were upgraded to a pool side villa. We had a fantastic time, all the staff are friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The owner of the resort came to visit us after a few days and was really keen to ensure we were well looked after. The only small problem we encountered was the lack of alcohol but this was not the fault of the hotel but due to a ban by the govt during the election period. Thankfully, this only lasted a few days and we were soon able to enjoy a beer with dinner etc ! The food was excellent, all the waiters were brilliant. Tony, in particular was really good as he spoke good English and was able to recommend places to visit etc ! If you are looking for a completely relaxed holiday then this is an ideal place to stay ! It's the epitome of tranquility so if you want nightlife then probably not the best place to go but for us, it was a perfect, chilled holiday in a beautiful setting. Oh and Hani, the local Tuk Tuk driver is awesome ! He made our holiday ! Acting as driver, shop haggler, tour guide. You name it, he did it. All in all, a lovely place to chill and relax ! Thanks to everyone there for their warmth and hospitality !
