Amazing hotel and stay
Couldn't have asked for a nicer hotel. Breakfast was incredible everyday and the beach is so beautiful and quiet. Old Town is only a 10 minute taxi from the hotel (10 euros if you want to go in the evening after the shuttle finishes) and the marina is a 4 euro journey - small price to pay to see the Bengal caves and the dolphins. A truly unforgettable holiday!

Very happy
Really loved our stay here! Beautiful pools, great room, lovely breakfast. Service was impeccable and the beach nearby was beautiful. We tried the buffet dinner one night, didn’t think it was worth the cost, I wouldn’t recommend that to guests. Also the wifi wasn’t very strong, but not a huge deal. Overall I would definitely recommend this hotel, I would love to come back!
