The villa is in a good location over the road from a nice beach. It is also on a busy road. The staff are lovely....

We arrived late after a long taxi ride so were very happy to be greeted with a delicious cocktail and nice cup of tea. They also had a welcome note up for us in the hotel reception, which put a smile on our faces. The room (we were second floor, towards the back) was adequate, not huge, with the bed...

Ridee Villa is more than a hotel is a experience of life. The hotel is a boutique hotel, with wonderfull rooms and a service that a never see.

We stayed in one of the VIP suites. Thought we'd treat ourselves. The room was lovely; large, clean, comfortable, good shower, fast wifi, a large balcony, plenty of storage. Everything you could need. You also get access to a kitchen (though you'd be mad not to eat at the local restaurants) and there's a happy hour in the afternoon where...
