The service of the staff is what makes this hotel very recommendable. Friendly and always willing to help and assist.
We stayed with a family of four for ten days, during Christmas and new year. Although the local culture does not celebrate Christmas, they did a great job decorating and hosting a beautiful Christmas eve Gala diner. For New Year's eve they made a fantastic effort and we truly enjoyed the evening.
The hotel is located on a beautiful island, where one can easily walk around or take a hotel bicycle, to go to bikini beach for example. This is not a resort island: there are also a few guesthouses and a small local village on the island, which we liked a lot. If weather permits, excursions are being organized. We especially enjoyed the Sandbank excursion. A big plus is that you can snorkel right from the beach. Within ten meters you will find corals with beautiful fish. The shallow water makes it very child friendly as well. You might want to bring watershoes though, since there are quite some rocks in the sand.
During the rainy days we enjoyed the games the hotel has to offer, all in good condition: table tennis, table football/fuzball, darts, pool..
The food was excellent. The chef and his team prepare it with love and pride. They have limited ingredients available, but they are creative and make it very tasty.
Pros: Service, friendly, affordable, great food, beautiful island.
Cons: The generator is noisy and takes a few days to get used to. They have plans to soundproof and/or move it.
We didn't always enjoy the type of music.
Location: Snorkeling, diving, dolphin watching, snorkelling with sharks, sandbank excursion.
