My partner and I spent the weekend here to chill out and unwind. Drinks on the veranda, beautiful pool to swim in, large rooms and very helpful service when needed. To top it off the beach is just 50m away if you want to watch the sunrise. Syed the manager even came down to hit a few balls with us...
