We stopped for 7 nights in the tower with views of jungle. The room was on the 20th floor. I found the room clean and well maintained. The pool area had work been done to it but this did not effect our stay. I would stop again

I've been here for almost 24 hours and 6 more days to go. I don't know how I'm going to survive. Spending around £1000 for flight and accommodation has been a big mistake. Everything is so utilitarian. There is no ambience, no quiet restaurant or an inviting air conditioned bar. Everything is geared towards families with small kids. Breakfast this...

An amazing beachside resort with a beautiful pool by the beach! The hotel has 2 sections beach tower (the old wing with beach view) and the new wing Ferrangi tower (city and partial sea view). It was a refreshing and pleasant stay!

We loved the rather old-fashioned and homely feel of our room in the Beach Wing, looking out over the water, so much so that we spent more time relaxing and enjoying its ambiance than exploring the local area.
