Great resort given the location. Beautiful surroundings with very polite and helpful staff. The accomdation is good, clean and air conditioned. The thatched roofs needs attention and it spoils what otherwise could have been an excelent facility.

Our second time here. The last time we went, we were worried that the lack of maintenance will close this place down. This was a year and a half ago. And now, it almost looks deserted when you drive in at the gate. The gate...More

Lady at Spa was very rude and seems very unwilling to assist. Breakfast was poor - only bread & cereals available. They brought muffins out after 10:00 (breakfast was from 07:00 - 09:00). When we asked what was for breakfast we were told only bread...More
