We had such expectations of great friendly service and accommodation based on the glowing reviews from TripAdvisor. Sadly, we did not experience the same. We were supposed to be met at the airport for our transfer but the representative (Hassan) arrived 20 minutes late after calling him and even after he arrived we had difficulty finding him as he had...

Thank you for your review, We are very sorry for your holiday experience in Happy Life, late 20 min. airport pick up service (but for sure we won't leave our guests without contact) and specially the unhelpful advice about island activities :( We would feel sorry about that, What we noted here is, Happy Life is a product who wants...

He arranged everything from picking us up in the jetty, getting a kayak, a sup, snorkel and turtle watching. The food was marvellous and Hassan's...

This piece of paradise offers everything you need to be happy! From relaxing on the beach and tranquil village life, to unbelievable dive sights, fishing spots and of course amazing unspoiled waves for the perfect surf experience. With us you'll enjoy the local island experience with a la carte flexibility and the personal touch of a boutique guesthouse. We offer four double rooms, each with en-suite bathroom and ocean, beach and palm tree views. The beach is only 20 meters from your doorstep.
