This is the worst place ever! The service is between nil to non existent. The food looks old. The rooms are crawling with bugs. They ration the water and the electricity to specific times of day.. only it doesn't really apply because we lacked water and power for two days. The hotel has lots of rooms..but they are furnished to... More

The management is very nice & good. We check-in at the chalet No.31-No.33. The toilet is dirty because the resort dont have a water supply at that time so the housekeeping cant wash the toilet. Aircond at the chalet are very hot & need to service a.s.a.p. In the chalet there is no TV just bed. Overall the resort is... More

With this place you have to look at the bigger picture!!! We had two chalets both had a large double and a single bed so plenty of room for our family of 5. However, this "resort", and I use the world loosely is very run down. The rooms are a good size but lots of marks on the walls, I... More

The sink in the bathroom nearly fell off ,it was filthy.service got better the the more you got to know the staff. Positives: the chalets had a good... More

To be honest, it's a bit of a shambles. There's no Wifi as promised and the pool's out of use. We had to ask 3 times for towels and toilet paper. There was a leak in our chalet which flooded the bath room, unnoticed during the room prep... There are power cuts, though that might be island wide. The whole... More

Oh My God Allah.. Where do I start... 1) Horrible horrible expensive food. Food on any island would be expensive generally.. but serving horrible food is not an excuse any where.

We payed 160 Rm per night, and I must say that even 16 RM would have been way too much for a place like this. In the so called garden, especially in the part close to the kitchen, there is... More

“Chalet with seaview might be worth to choose. View for chalets behind might be blocked.”
  • Cupboard near the bathroom. And another window.
  • Pretty curtains and coloured windows.
  • Ample space for luggages or belongings. Good natural lighting and can see nice view too from her
