Pros: Location, large room with balcony, large bathroom, friendly staff
Cons: The room air-conditioning was very noisy, so noisy we had to turn it off to sleep, this was the only negative thing about our stay.
Location: Wonderful location, great view & the free shuttle made access to White Beach very easy.
Great Hotel, beautiful view, great pool, friendly staff. The free shuttle into town was very convenient. Would love to return.

quite, nice location, good access to other areasPosted Nov 13, 2013 on Hotels.com
I like this place...away from the noise and crowds at white beach but accessible if that is your cup of tea via the hourly van to d'mall. Location is vvery nice as in a hilltop so very nice views of ocean and sunset. Close to a couple of the lesser frequented beaches like puka beach and punta bunga. Check out punta bunga before the massive resort there is finish...there is a little cove there with the crystal blue water and white beach right out of a post card and no crownds...yet. Must pay resort fee but is applied to consumables. Short walk from the hotel. Puka beach is farther and more crowded but still pretty nice...much more so than white beach in my opinion.

Hotel Soffia is a keeper!Posted Nov 1, 2013
Pros: I loved the breakfast buffet, including the garlic rice, the pool was great, the decor and the staff was really, really nice, and helpful.
Cons: I really had no complaints, this was one of the best hotel experiences I've had. Oh, No wifi in the room. Only lobby and cafe. Which was fine.
Location: Not much to walk and see - that's why the shuttle service is GREAT! Go from tranquility to chaos every hour on the hour on the free shuttle.
I LOVED my stay at Hotel Soffia. I didn't want the crowds and the noise so I took a chance on Soffia. It was perfect for me. Yes, it was further away than most of the other hotels and not on the beach but I had great views, peaceful, quiet evenings, great food and the staff was really really nice. The coolest thing about Soffia was every hour on the hour the shuttle took whoever wanted to go down to D'Mall. This was a great service. And when you were finished on the main beach just be at the bus stop at D'Mall at :15 after the hour and the bus was there to take you back to Soffia! And... Soffia's location made it absolutely perfect for short trips to Puka Beach where it was way less crowded. I was much happier there than the overcrowded main beach where it was impossible to get that postcard shot of the sunset without 50 people in your picture.

It was a pleasant stay at the hotel Te staff are fvery friendly and accommodating. They tried their best to satisfy with our requests. They had clean rooms and pool. The only thing I didn't like during our stay was the shower which doesn't give us constant temprature, it changes from hot to cold water without adjusting.

Great getaway!Posted Oct 26, 2013 on Hotels.com
Everything was perfect except for the location, motorcycle taxi wont go up the hill after a late night of drinking so climbing up while drunk was a hassle. Other than everything else was excellent;)

Great Hotel For the Money Excellent ViewsPosted Oct 23, 2013 on Hotels.com
I loved the hotel free shuttle is always on time. They also offer free shuttle service to the port when your heading back home. The room was very clean and the view from the room and the pool area was beautiful. The only thing I had a problem with was the water pressure. The water would go from warm to cold then to extremely hot.

hotel was 15 minutes away from the main area (D'mall) but that wasn't a problem because there was a free shuttle going to and fro the area every hour. staff was friendly and greeted us every morning when we went to the lobby. breakfast choices were limited but that wasn't a problem for me since i'm not much of a breakfast person. small infinity pool added an interesting touch to the hotel. the welcome drink tasted really good and they hung shell necklaces around our necks. the hotel was kept clean, however there were problems with the shower which clogged up, and the water kept alternating between ice cold and burning hot. we had a blackout a couple of times in the room and there was a particular light that kept going on and off by itself. that was rather annoying but we just ignored it. toilet bowl also sometimes flushed on its own. coupled with the lights, that was pretty creepy but i guess we got used to it after the second day. toileteries were included (toothbrush toothpaste soap shampoo ear buds shower cap) and i thought that was a nice touch. stayed for 6d5n and i thought overall it was fine. no wifi in the room though - hafta go down to the lobby to get it but that wouldnt be a problem if you can tether it from your phone.

Very pleasant for peace & tranquilityPosted Oct 14, 2013
Pros: Our room was spacious and clean, whilst there was a power cut during the first night, we noticed this was normal for the island following stays in oth
Location: Far from most things, and high on a steep hill, our motorbike taxi couldnt quite reach the top! But the free shuttle has no problems.
The hotel has a lovely character, reminding us in many ways of Mama Mia the movie for its setting. High on a hill 8 mins from the busy centre, it has great views a lovely pool and pleasing pool side restaurant. With a free shuttle every hour it is easy to visit the beach.
