Better than Mauritius! Everything you need to buy is walking distance from Cabanas. Most relaxing time as the staff look after every- and anything you may need. Restaurants in and about are excellent!

This was our second vacation at this resort and once again we were impressed with the staff at this resort. We were not too happy with the room assigned to us and although they were unable to move us for our first week, we were allocated a room with a fantastic sea view for our second week. The move was...

A beautiful well maintained resort. Very Friendly and helpful staff. The sea views from this resort are spectacular. Something for everyone as far as entertainment is concerned or just a quiet restful holiday.

We stayed 5 nights in March 2017. When I booked in January 2017 I was not informed of the massive construction site directly next to the hotel. There is no mention of this on the hotels website either. We were given a room in the south tower adjacent to the construction and every morning at 7 am we woke up...

Absolutely wonderful time spent in a friendly, clean environment. Staff extremely friendly and knowledgeable about both hotel and surrounding facilities. Even the local people looked happy and eager to serve. Cannot find a bad word to say about the food, FANTASTIC. As a UK resident and with financial exchange rate so beneficial to UK £, everything seems so unbelievably cheap....

Stayed here for 5 days with family and overall had a great time. The views from higher up are amazing and the sound of the waves are a wonderful way to sleep. As it is self-catering, there isn't much (ie. no salt/pepper, only one tea bag on arrival) so you do need to be prepared for that. The rooms are...

My friend and I spent a wonderful couple hours today at the Hair and Beauty parlor. First we had a relaxing back massage, followed by a relaxing facial, then continued on to have a foot massage and pedicure with a refreshing cup of tea. The ladies were attentive and always checked what we liked regarding pressure while doing the massage....
