We spent 5 days at this resort and wished for more time! Friendly staff, beautiful room, special environment. Loved the roaming tortoises...4 of them on the grounds. We wanted to visit Aride Island, and the assistant manger made it happen. The only thing that could be improved upon was the food...it was just OK. Definitely stay here again.

It was a nice and relaxing vacation in this Resort, rooms are clean and the beach is wonderful. Peaple are kind especially the barman of the Emerald Cove Anura,who works well and serve a very good cocktails. The only thing that could be much better is the quality of food.

We spent 6 days here at the end of March and came primarily for the snorkelling. We weren't disappointed.

Overall hotel needs renovation, facilities look old and pretty worn out, for sure showers in the room can be redesigned and enlarged to actually fit a person. Beach and snorkelling was great, dinner buffet is very good. Water is overpriced, specially as there is no shop nearby to get it from. Location is isolated and quiet, nothing but sun, beach... More
