We arrived at the hotel with high expectations and we were somewhat surprised when we were taken to our room - one of the highest category rooms in the hotel - and it absolutely stank. This was apparently because a new thatched roof had been installed. The room was not habitable with that smell, and you can imagine our disappointment...

When we entered one of the bedrooms there was a distinct odour which we realized we could not tolerate. The staff showed us a few other villas but whilst some were not as bad there was still some smell. The resort manager...

I can't rate The Bale enough, my husband and I spent 5 relaxing days here and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The villas are absolutely beautiful and so well kept.
