It was not a nice breakfast. Not enough towels. View from two of the rooms is a wall. Their is insufficient outdoor furniture, and the furniture that is outdoors is not well maintained. Not enough chairs. Pool table but no balls. Unfriendly receptionist.
The swimming pool is clean and well maintained. Maria and Siya were very friendly and helpful.

Felt racially profiled by the owner, who gave the room I had booked and specifically requested 2 months back and paid in full to a white couple who booked after me.. I even sent an email to confirm the specific room and it was confirmed as available, I still have the email of the confirmation ..the owner even threatened to kick me out to the street at dusk with my wife and not even get my money back to book somewhere else. Had to beg him to stay while he told me that he was actually doing me a favour. Found out that it is not the first time people of colour have been treated like this. Apparently treats the workers and shouts at them too. Quite a few have left to such behaviour.. felt belittled and scammed for my money.

Will never go back there again and would not recommend it to anyone especially person of colour.. worst holiday I ever had .

Beach retreat is a horrible place with a horrible owner who cares only about our money but not us a clients.. even his toned was so dismissive and undermining and condensing..

Utterly disgusted..

This place I would definitely recommend to everyone!

Great place, good room, nice beds, fantastic view, friendly staff, quiet neighbourhood. Close to mall (with lots of shops, cinema, ice ring, games, restaurants and more) and beach.
