It's been a while since we had a fantastic two weeks in this exceptional hotel hoping to return again sometime in the near future. Everything about the Fort is unbelievable the food service and rooms are unreal and as for the beach well just it on your snorkel and enjoy you won't find anywhere better.

There is a lot to like about this hotel. I am already booked to go again. Beach is lovely and snorkelling was excellent. Though I think they need to do more to protect it. Beach is certainly the best in the area and sunbeds well spaced. Pool nicely warm and they have life guards. Gardens are lovely. Flowers, birds, lots...
