Lacking of atmosphere. Expensive food/drink.
We felt that the place (in reality when get there), is a bit tired and getting worn down a bit. It's quite minimalist and sparse. The beach is lovely here though. They could do with revamping the pool area and having a nicer atmosphere. Pool is saltwater also. Not an issue for me, but might be for others. The place was deserted when we were there. Which was nice in some ways, but awkward in others. The service at meal times was pleasant, but a bit too fussy and always coming back and forth to the table and not letting you relax and have some peace and quiet. The beverages are quite expensive and so is the food. The buffet dinner was good though and a nice big selection. Which we felt terrible about, since it was just a few guests, with so much food prepared. The wifi in the place was very patchy and kept dropping out. Mostly with the in-room wifi. The bedroom itself was fairly small.and there was lack any plug sockets next to the bed. Which always annoys me and makes no sense. The bathroom was huge and clean. Although the bathroom and shower backed up to where alot of staff would chat and make noise. I was surprised that a lot of the staffs English was quite poor. Some simple requests and questions, were met with confusion. Overall, its friendly service for the most part. Restaurant staff are very nice. The place just needs something else added around the grounds of the pool to create a nicer feel.

A lovely calm atmosphere. A boutique feel about it. One member of staff, Ashok Kumar (head of front office management) deserves special special mention and praise. Thank you Ashok.
