This place is located on a very pretty part of the coast, so the beach is amazing. We stayed at the villas, and it was OK - not really luxury, but we had everything we needed that week, plus an extra swimming pool. Jacaranda is full of Italians who are the main clients here (mostly via travel agencies). The chef...

We stayed at Jacaranda for three nights with my wife and our 5 year-old daughter. This was during Christmas from 26th - 29th December 2016. The experience was amazing despite being peak time. We were on an all-inclusive package and had a chance to sample and indulge in delicacies served by the hotel during all mealtimes. The service is great...

Amazing beach resort with a beautiful beach, and a very lively resort. Animation team is very active, and there is always something to do. Food and quality of service is also very great. One issue from a personal view : Hotel Management (Reception) and the team responsible for distributing rooms to new customers need to be more open and friendly....

We had a deal with breakfast and dinner included. Food was great with a lot of choice, although Mr Four was disappointed that the Kuku (Chicken) Restaurant didn't serve kuku in the two days that we were there. The room was spacious and the air-con delicious. The bathrooms were also spacious with toiletries provided. Staff were friendly and helpful. The...

The property was vast. My childen enjoyed the pool. The walk to the reef...a good almost 2 hour walk was fantastic. We have never enjoyed low tide this vast! and we saw quite a number of sea creatures. The hotel was fantastic, the waiters should probably go round and check on the guests? the room was spacious and airy. Next...

It was our honeymoon holidays for two weeks during valentine day. We get upgraded room on the beach so we have only a few meters to the beach! Jacaranda is great place to stay.

Jacaranda beach resort is notably very well run, the facilities were amazing from the pools to the tennis court, and the gym too. The staff were kind and very friendly. They responded fast when we needed something and didn't hesitate to help when we looked stranded or a little confused. The food was great, delicious choices and a wide range....

Despite, the bad road..i really enjoyed this place. Its so homely,quiet and peaceful. Not to mention the diet..amazing. Beach is clean see lots of sea creatures if you walk into the sea during morning hours. But for sure this is a baby making spot or even a time to really bond with your better half.
