Liked the general look of the place. Housekeeping need to pay more attention to cleaning cobwebs. Nice pool n seafront restaurant n bar. Rooms need a bit of updating. Lot of rust in bathroom. Put cable in rooms please. Local channels don’t cut it. Overall I like the villa style.

The pools were closed for maintenance upon arrival and both pools was a horrible green colour after cleaning one turned a blue colour but next day was green looked disgusting the room was very dated walls had blood on them the bathroom was dirty tiles missing in the shower toilet cystem was very hot 😧 The beach loungers were shabby and was never cleaned up for miring we arrived on the Saturday, Wednesday and Thursday was on safari thank goodness and checked out on Friday morn losing a substantial amount of money and costing us even more for another hotel bitterly disappointed and nearly ruined the start of our holiday

The Villa was fab. We upgraded to a Master room which was excellent and well worth the money. Close to the beach, perfect location. The Villa was very clean and all the appliances were brand new.

Each building has 3 rooms and a shared common area. Wifi works in the room and sometimes at the dining room. Very secure area but when you go on the beach the locals hound you and don’t let up, every day. AC works fine, hot water. Restaurant has tasty food with free breakfast. Supermarket less than 5 minute walk away

Poor 2.0
I liked the area it was good. Upon arrival they took us to the room which we didn't not book and was way smaller than we reserved, staff then proceeded to tell to "push the beds together" to make it a double bed, we refused. The staff were rude as they were just hoping we would be ok with that room and take it, during check-in this brought an altercation between us and we felt as though we had to beg them to give us our rightly reserved room. Then staff we took us to smaller room ignored us during our 4 night stay. I would recommend staying here if you are not a " preferred guest" to them

Brilliant resort, good villas to share. My only problem is upon arrival on a very busy day priority was given to guests who had booked and were paying upon arrival. I had booked a deluxe room with beach front view and paid online which they didn't like and I was put in a standard room no beach view and no explanation. I had to let it go so I can enjoy my holiday.

There are no phones in the rooms, so if you need to talk to reception or want room service, you have to walk to the restaurant or reception and speak in person. Breakfast buffet had very limited choices and ran out of some items if you came for late breakfast. Be warned that if you choose a budget room, you will have a small room in a 3-bedroom villa with no chairs at all to sit down in your room. You would have to go downstairs to the shared living room, and if other tenants of the 3-bedroom villa are there, you will have to out to the beach to sit. We had a very poorly functioning toilet, which took 15-20 minutes to fill the tank after it was flushed. Overall, the property was disappointing and would not upgrade me to a deluxe room even when I said I would pay the extra charges.

Nice Beachfront Hotel with much privacy and lovely staff. At the moment a bit under construction but is not disturbing.
