Me and 5 other friends stayed at Temple Point Resort for spending new year holidays. After a disappointing stay at Twiga Club Viaggi, we moved to Temple point to spend the rest of our holiday.

Great neat hotel on the end of the archipelago. While not the greatest beach location compared to competing properties it does hold its own when it comes to the property as well as value for money. Second time in 3 years and would definitely put it on my consideration list for the next time we're around.

We stayed for 3 nights and were generally happy with our stay although there are some definite pros and cons for the hotel. We... More

When we reserved our stay here, the hotel was undergoing a few changes. It was the perfect holiday for our budget. The rooms are spacious and due to the way they are built in separated thatch villa style, there is not a sterile hotel atmosphere. Plenty of privacy and a lovely sitting area outside the room as well as on... More
