Really good food and great wine list with excellent service. Plenty of effort and thought put into the menu. Glorious white sandy beach right in front so plenty of room for the children to play. Highly recommend

I stayed in a bungalow near the beach, an awesome traditional experience, with the music of the waves of the ocean playing all night long! I loved the clean and spacious room, also the bath products they give you.

Lucerne, Switzerland43 contributions11 helpful votes
Can‘t tell you where to start: The location is wonderful, the food is excellent, the service extremly friendly. The rooms are very clean. They also have their own five-star diving center/school. So we did our PADI and about 10 dives. The place is run by a young italian couple… the espresso machine comes from italy, the food is italian and japanese — just excellent. The internet was good enough to have video conference calls, business meetings while staying in the hotel. Both around the pool, in the room and at the sunbeds close to the beach the internet was working perfectly… for us that was very important so we could work from the hotel instead of flying back home to Switzerland. Tomorrow we are leaving.. I‘d love to stay and we certainly will come back!

First of all we have never been disappointed with the food, it is delicious however the staff (Maya in particular) really make this place special. We had a question about something on the menu and she went out of her way to bring us a small portion and educate us on a particular fruit. We are so grateful for her wonderful service and we will be coming back again in the next few weeks to eat there again and hopefully say hello to the lovely Maya!

I don't think I can stay anywhere else on the coast after staying here. Just wow! Beautiful property, excellent rooms with good AC, a very deep pool, perfect location on the beach, and great food. Above all though, the service was outstanding. All the staff were so friendly and helpful. In spite of being fully booked, the hotel never felt crowded. They've spaced everything out perfectly. You also get free use of all the watersports equipment. I'll definitely be back!
