Felt like home

Staff friendlyness, wonderful welcoming atmostphere, breakfast is excellent
We had a wonderful stay. We advised the hotel in advance - via Agoda - that we are celebrating an anniversary and they really spoiled us and made it extra special. The staff from the front desk to room service to porter service to waitron service to the lady at the gate going down to the beach to the gentleman at the lifts were exceptional in their interaction as guests. Welcomed us back each time we walked through the front door / gate, wished us a great day. Said they want us to return soon so that they won't miss us too much. Just superb! This was our 3rd visit to the Oyster Box and we will most definitely go back again and again and again. Thank you so much to each and everyone that we had the pleasure to interact with including those amazing people behind the scenes that we don't always see but know the big role they also play. Best regards, Lindy and Shawn Cambouris Room 311.

Service could be better

View, food and Welcome
The service was not great. Requested an adaptor and had to phone 30 minutes later to remind staff. It appears you must not ask for anything at staff change over times
