Reviewed yesterday NEW

Great hotel, staff cant do enough for you and food choice is excellent. Make sure you try the food at the Mango tree Pradeep and his team make the whole night a very special event. The fish market at the cove bar on Tuesday/Thursday offer the best King prawns I have ever had.
