Positive Reviews

Amazing Activities

While the hotel perfectly accommodates those who want to do nothing other than relax, it also aims to appease the adventurous with its range of activities and excursions. Beginners and experts alike appreciate the world-class rock climbing, while dream kayaking, diving and snorkeling spots make many stays unforgettable.

Wonderful Workforce

Despite occasional communication breakdowns, staff are generally excellent and work tirelessly to enhance guest's experiences. Smiling drivers will greet you on the beach and whisk you and your luggage to your room by golf cart, while warm waitstaff and happy housekeepers contribute immensely to the happy vibe.

Fabulous Flora & Fauna

Reviewers are routinely wowed by this stunning natural setting. Nature lovers are blown away by the abundance of plants animals brightening the resort, while those taking to the sea marvel at the marine life. The limestone karsts jutting from the sea are every traveler's first photo.

Negative Reviews

Attention Required

Some arrivals have been disappointed at the lack of a sea view from rooms, while others said the accommodations are in need of updating. Old beds are uncomfortable, water from showers is low-pressure, AC units are loud and unreliable, bathroom tiles are cracked and TVs show only static.

Ice, Ice Baby

Unfortunately, a number of guests have been struck down by poisoning here. While some suggest uncooked fish may be the problem, others think the issue emanates from ice cubes made from local tap water. Obviously, guests highly recommend having an ice-less drink to avoid this eventuality.

Booze-Free Zone

Guests arriving in the mood to party have had their dreams dashed to discover the hotel is Muslim-run, and, therefore, alcohol-free. Bars and mini-fridges purvey soft drinks only, but management are decent in their understanding of guests who may want to bring their own beverages in from elsewhere.
