4/10 Fair

Local staffs were lovely and bubbly. Hotel provides daily bus into town in the morning (outbound 9:30am, return at 12:30pm.) If you wish to go to town for dinner, the hotel would graciously provide rides into town (we’d invite the driver to dine with us.) The ocean front beach view is just stunning and calming. Nevertheless, try to avoid the coral beach front Villa, if you don’t like living alongside insects/creatures (I honestly couldn’t relax at night time, because there were lizards crapping in bed, next to my pillow… there were loud noise coming from crabs scratching inside the walls in the middle of the night… or in the last few evenings, there were odd, tapping-noise lasting all night long…) Besides this tiny flaw, this property’s location is really great.

6/10 Good

Beautiful ocean views from some of the units, not very good area for elderly people, unable to use swiming pool if you are suffering any disability. Would be a good place for honeymooners.

10/10 Exceptional

This is my favourite resort out of the three we stayed at this trip. It's a very intimate feeling place ideal for couples, however, there were families staying here while we were here. The pool isn't the best of all the resorts, however, everything else was the best of the others we stayed at. The staff, the menu and fresh food options and the location are amazing however, you are a long way from shops, so make sure you bring everything with you, including snacks etc. But this will definitely be a resort we return to agin and again.

Beautiful location right on the beach, amazing and friendly staff that could not do enough for us. Local spots to check out, turtle sanctuary, horseriding in the mountains, fire show at the beach bar. Will be coming back to stay in paradise again soon.

10/10 Exceptional

Incredible oasis of a property, had everything we needed for a truly relaxing holiday. The staff were warm and friendly and very attentive to our needs, the food was outstanding. Our villa on the beach was clean, bright and beautifully designed. The location was perfect, very quiet and right on the beach with a lovely breeze on most days. The pool was ok and it’s a shame you can’t swim in the ocean too easily as it’s surrounded by coral reef, but it’s so inviting and one of the cleanest beaches I’ve seen, we will definitely be back.
