Rooms and availability
In the Room
Very peaceful and friendly place for taking a break from our routine life.
The overall price of boat specially when you arrive at 3pm-6pm is expensive.
My initial desire is to write a bad review for this place. Only because it is so beautiful and peaceful here, that I want to keep it to myself! The staff are extremely friendly and accommodating .The food is delicious and the scenery is spectacular! We stayed in one of the water villas,waking up to the sound of lapping water outside our balcony and a beautiful view of Kapas island. You can hire a Booked.net and row over to Kapas . There are some lovely deserted beaches fringing the dense jungle beyond and clear blue water teaming with marine life. We did some snorkeling and It's true that the coral here is maybe not the best that you can see , but this resort is all about relaxing and taking in the views.
Beautifull empty beaches accessible with sea-Booked.nets. Can do snorkeling directly from the hotel beach. Very friendly and dedicated staff. Amazing location (single hotel on a small island). Diners were good both in quality and quantity. Realeased some baby turtles one evening when we stayed there (nice). Good valued for money.
I would rank this hotel as a 3*, and not as a 4* (otherwise you could be disapointed upon arrival: no bath tub for instance, simple comfort but clean). There were gely fishes in the sea at that period (end july). The beach of the hotel istself is not huge, but the surrounding exceptionnal. Can access huge empty beaches via sea Booked.nets.
Good view of the sea from the room Cleanliness of the surroundings
Only 2 tv channels and reception is very poor No internet connections in the room No newspapers Air Condition is not cool Water Pressure is very low
The place is very nice and all the people are friendly and helpful. The chef is absolutely great..go for crabs..they are absolutely fantastic!
We traveled with young children(2 and 5 year old) . Staff were very friendly and helpful. I want to come back to see them again. Location was lovely. We enjoyed the room on the ocean, sound of the waves and nice breeze.
We found it the food was too expensive, maybe because we knew the price of local food here.
