Bungalow with air-cond and basic facilities. Excellent sea view! Lots of climbing up and down since it is perched on a hill side. In a very natural environment! The staff is friendly and helpful. Situated about 1.3km away from the main area. Walkable but you need a torch light to walk at night to shine your path.

We stayed here for 3 nights and had an okay stay, but there are a number of things people need to consider before booking. The hotel is through the town where the bars and restaurants are and up a steep hill, it is not a far drive but would be quite a difficult walk, therefore you get ripped off with...

First, this is a hillside resort. So if you got a room as us near the beach or swimming pool you will get a good workout in the heat just to get to the reception and breakfast. They got a golf car pickup service but not all the day and you have to wait. The view and water outside the...

Dear Management of the run down Hillside Resort, It is about time that you spent some money on your establishment!
