We chose this place following a friend's recommendation and we were really pleased. The tree house was amazing! Up three flights of stairs and perched above the canopy of trees with views of the sea in two directions......bliss! Really quirky interior with enough space (just) for a double and two singles so our family could stay together. Bathroom has two...

We were having quite a good night here. Dinner was fine. Music was fine. Staff was doing a good job. Some house dogs wee barking sometimes and then it happened. A staff member hit one of the dogs quite hard on its head which for me was a turning point here. I really don't like that kind of behavior. Very...

Cinnabar is in a beautiful location right on the beach in Tangalle. The rooms are open air tree houses or alternatively bungalows. We had a rustic treehouse which seemed to recently have been built. This was so quaint and cute we loved it, there were however a lot of bugs at night which consequently lead to waking up with a...

A really lovely little resort. The budget double room was cute, clean and spacious with a nice bathroom and hot water. The staff were super friendly and helpful and went out of their way to make your stay great. The food in the restaurant was good. The beach was fab and although not great for swimming you didn't have to...

The sea here is too rough for safe swimming but you only have a ten minute walk along the beach to find a good spot for a dip. Great staff looked after us really well throughout our stay, including transport and advice on places to visit etc...

We were looking for a place to spend the last days of our holidays and totally relax; and it was perfect! We stayed here for 5 days. We booked one day upon arrival and by luck we were appointed the treehouse with seeview. The treehouse is great, even with a small balcony with a hammock overlooking the sea. If you...

We loved staying at the Cinnabar Resort. We stayed in one of the treehouse bungalows. The tree house was too rustic and basic for us but we loved the bungalow. It was still rustic with good facilities . A large room with insect cover and a large bathroom. We had a lovely large deck with a day bed to relax...
