Friendly and helpful staff, relaxing views, close to the booze shop, limited choices but satisfying breakfast.

We went to Barracuda to celebrate Christmas eve and our wedding anniversary. This place is perfect for special occasions or if you are simply looking a quiet and relaxing ambiance and most of all, it is close to the booze shop.:)The hotel itself is a bit dated and needs improvement, breakfast has limited choices, but still satisfying. Overall, it was a pleasant experience and we will definitely come back!

Modest resort with a fabulous infinity pool”

This resort may not look super posh but the cleanliness and staff are on the high level. Their infinity pool is gorgeous. As a European, having an exquisite cellar and pork shop within the resort made the stay even better. You can also spot different birds on the premises, including flamingos and woodpeckers. Right at the entrance to the resort, you can take a photo of the famous attraction: abandoned Russian plane. Note: you can't get too close as it is forbidden. In general, it was a very pleasant stay and l would like to re-visit soon.

The room was neat n clean with bare necessities ”

The location ... The food and service

The stay was comfortable.. But the hotel has nothing much to offer except for the pool.. Bed frame and head board are worn out..mini bar is empty ... Could be stacked with soda... Cola juices and ice. Even some nuts n chips could also be offered... Coz u need to order these things when u could save time. Bath slipper n towels were also to be requested for...but are provided upon request... Tea/ coffee facility provided is a plus...feel it's a bit over priced for a 2star property.
