1/5

  • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service

Was supposed to check in 2 rooms at 3pm, I reached at 5pm and was informed that the second room was still not available, and no idea on when will it be ready. Finally collected the room at 630pm, but they gave me a 2 single bed room although I had paid for a room with king bed. They asked if it’s possible for them to combine the 2 beds into 1 for us. I gave a straight nah to their face. Hence, they upgraded it to sea view. Upon entering to that prestige “sea view” room, floor was oily, saw a dead small cockroach in the bathroom floor, balcony bench was dirty and oily too. I decided to give it a last chance and requested for room service to mop the floor. After mopping, I was surprised to see that the floor feels the same. I gave up all hopes and took it as my bad luck. That’s all I have to say.

5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

the deco and design of the rooms were quite unique and nice. just that the sea sports facilities were limited maybe due to the period i visited was monsoon period and the atv vehicle were quite worn out not very well maintained. other than that the indoor facilities in the resort were great and good for short stay

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

It was pleasantly quiet and peaceful on weekdays. We booked for the pool view room and it was great. Good view on the higher floor and very spacious clean rooms. The room is designed specifically for couples. The receptionist was friendly too. Would definitely return again
