          They just have a beautiful location”

          They could do much better than that... they just have the fortune to have a wonderful beach. Needs renovation everywhere (restaurant, beach, ....) and even though our room has already been renovated is not as the pictures on the web. Disappointing especially for the price we paid. What a shame....

          Absolutely lovely place”

          One of the best locations i've stayed at in a long time, the location is perfect, it has one of the most beautiful beaches i've ever been to so far. They have a swimming pool as well but who cares about that when you have that crystal clear seawater right infront. Everything was perfect for us, only downside is that this hotel does not serve alcohol, so anyone wanting to have any beers and etc will need to walk to the other side to get some, so that was the only downside about it. Food was a tad bit overpriced, we found some other restaurants on the other side that served better food with a fraction of the price compared to this hotel, but i can't complain, this place has the best beach on the island and thoroughly enjoyed our stay here!

          last minute booking hence you pay 3 times the price for one night. but we are happy. hotel chalets facing beach sea front. kayaking, and snorkelling and scuba diving centre available. breakfast inclusive. overall okay, we stayed out all day only gets back to shower and sleep, didn't notice much of the facilities in the room. is basic, coffee tea provided, drinking water provided, good shower and shower amenities provided except toothbrush.

          The beach was everything and more. My children loved them so much. The white sandy beach was to die for. Our room was just right in front of the beach, sooo sooo convenient. The room was just alright. Didn’t know that they don’t have tv tho. But yeah, who cares, beach alllll the time anyway. The whole place was just soooo beautiful and nice. I would come back here again and again. Side note: the food was just average, so we headed to barat to eat which was a trek away considering kids n all but it was not too bad.

          SUPERB VIEW”

          Pros - view was superb, can even count the stars while laying down inside the bed-nest in front of the restaurant by the beach. Can even snorkel by the beach in front of the resort. My baby of two years ENJOYED snorkel by the beach and playing with the fishes just in front of the resort. White sandy beach, crystal clear water, and the fishes swimming with us. Heaven. Cons - food at resort's restaurant a little bit expensive, not much choices and not that good. Breakfast was so - so. Tips for food - go to a nearby resort/restaurant within a walking distance. Better choices and cheaper.

          AMAZING VIEW; EXCELLENT STAY”

          Never regret my stay here. The sand was soft and white. The beach was pristine with crystal clear water. We can even snorkel in front of the resort. There were fishes, and corals. However the corals weren't so beautiful. Unfortunately we weren't able to see even a glimpse of a turtle in front of the resort even though everybody says that the turtle point was in front of the resort. The beach were private, so it was not crowded. My little toddler of 28 months enjoyed the beach very much and he could even feed the fish. And he even snorkelled. The only negative side was the food, I would say, it is overpriced. On the 2nd nite of stay, we went to nearby resort's restaurant (within 5 - 10 minutes walking distance) which offers much more varieties of seafood; cooked in Thai style. Overall, my family & I enjoyed the stay. had the food was good and not overpriced I would have given 5 stars.

          Amazing beach with OK accommodation for the money. Lacks design and appreciation of the surroundings. Too much hard standing and not enough nature around the rooms. Food OK but overcooked and not fresh. Facilities are excellent. Staff friendly. They gave me the wrong room with no alternative.

          Above average”

          The Resort best feature lies in its location: the surrounding trees and hills and the beach and the fishes in the sea. They need enhancing and protecting. I would expect more notices in the hotel and around its premise reminding its guests and visitors of the dos and donts about snorkelling and swimming in the sea. I don't think its additions and building of other local facilities add to its attractiveness. As I said its values lies in its natural location .Also I think the food need much improvement especially the breakfast. A very simple scramble egg could be done better. May I suggest that the hotel get some professional help . The food in Barat just round the corner from the Resort has got it right and its services are friendly and attractive..
