Stayed here for 2 nights. Friendly staff, large room with pool and sea view. Very nice pool! A little bit away from the action on the cliffs (15min walk). Near black beach (very quiet). You will need transport for sightseeing but I was traveling on a motorbike

Easy walk to the beach, nice beach. Very nice view from my room. The price was fair, it was off season. The first 3 days the pool was good, then because of rain and no sun, the water turned green. We were unable to swim the last 3 days of our stay. We were told they would take credit card...

We were due to stay here in April 2014 for 7 nights. Due to a problem with our debit card we were unable to book online so telephoned the hotel the day before check-in to arrange a reservation and here we agreed a price too. Upon arrival at the hotel in early evening around 7pm the hotel was badly lit...

This is our experience of this hotel. Obviously others opinions may differ. We stayed on a B&B basis in a standard air conditioned room.We found this hotel to be very pleasant, especially the price and location (opposite end of the cliff from the 'helipad and about 50p to there by tuk tuk) The staff were absolutely wonderful, friendly, very helpful...

If it wasn't for very good location and the price (that was quite affordable) this hotel would have been total disappointment. Main reason for booking were swimming pool and Ayurveda massage in hotel. It turned out that swimming pool was unusable because of opaque water - (explanation was that it was temporarily, due to cleaning but it lasted 6 days)...

It seems as if this hotel has been built as a family home, but the family don't want to occupy it yet, so they have opened it as a hotel until such time as they want to move in...!... So this means that there is no proper, staffed reception, or room service (no phone in room), and the whole place...

Loved this place in the past, especially the pool, but new owners are ruining it. The room we booked was dirty, then the power went off just for that room. They wanted to move us to an ugly interior room with huge spiders running on the wall. Followed our house boy Ashok across the street to a better place.
