The reception staff were very friendly and efficient. We were taken to our rooms within no time at all. The rooms are beautifully done and...

The place is awful and the people are to, no idea what service is. You have to pay for an iron with no ironing bored. The food is poor and for an all inclusive hotel you do not get anything, you have to pay for coke which is not part of the the all inclusive deal, you can not get...

This is perfect even for bag packers but has so much value. The rooms are spacious and really clean. The hotel is amazing and located very close to Cafesserie in City Mall (150 by tuk tuk) and Haller park which are both amazing by the way. I loved this place so much. The beach disappeared when we wanted to swim...

I had the best time here.It's the perfect place to escape from the hustle of the city. It's very peaceful. The staff was amazing.Good food and great services and there were breathtaking views of the ocean from the rooms close to the beach. I would go here again and again.

A very cosy and serene location. A perfect weekend getaway, suitable for both short and long stays We just spent a lovely weekend with family. Very immaculate and modern rooms with very friendly and helpful staff. Lovely view of the Indian Ocean especially from the Frangipani Restaurant, which has amazing finger-licking meals. Offers great opportunity for many water activities.

The superior rooms are pretty good. Though only the first few blocks are sea facing. Food was ok. Service was good. The old rooms are pretty run down. The bar needs improvement as basic drinks were not available. Rates are pretty reasonable and if you speak well, you might just get a free upgrade to the superior rooms.
