    overpriced for quality of hotel

    Hotel location and view are fantastic. Nice pool. Extremely disappointed with standard of cleanliness. Bedding was old and stained, definitely not premium. Towels were worn out. Bathroom not properly cleaned. Overall, property could do with a big spring clean and refresh. Not worth asking price compared to other hotels.

    A mixed bag.

    There are many things to commend this hotel - it’s lovely pool, the beachfront location, the very good food at reasonable prices, comfortable room( although the shower was pathetic). However there was an atmosphere in the place that made me feel uncomfortable. The staff did not seem happy, there was a lot of standing around looking under occupied and at times almost hostile. As the end of our stay approached there was quite a shameless push from some staff to make themselves known to us, shake our hands and wish us well. Whispering Palms did not feel like a happy place to work and I can only speculate that this is a management issue.

    Small and beautiful

    Small beachfront hotel with great hotel restaurant and excellent Italian restaurant next door. All rooms sea view I would request a top floor even though no lift 3 floors are manageable and best view.

    Fantastic hotel! Staff was very kind and helpsome. Nice beach and pool - hard to decide whether we should stop by the pool, or continue the next 5 meters to the beach.

    تجربة سيئة جدا

    صور المنتجع ممتازة ومغرية لكن في الواقع الأمر مختلف تماما. لا أنصح في تجربته إطلاقا

    Goed hotel, goede rustige locatie. We werden ziek van de eerste lunch, maar het hotel keek er niet erg van op. We hebben niet het idee gekregen dat ze het erg voor ons vonden. Helaas stond deze lunch ook nog op de rekening en heb ik ook geen reactie mogen ontvangen over de officiële klacht die ik heb gemaakt. De keuken is niet best. Toch zou ik het hotel aanraden.
