Had a great stay at this resort,comfortable clean rooms. Food was good,the chef was showing off because it was low season,normally they would have buffet but since there were not enough guests they served alla carte which was really nice 4 courses and beautifully presented,after having buffet in most of the places we've been to it was a nice change.

I have been there for two days mostly focusing on snorkeling with my family and 3 other families including kids from 5-13 years of age. The place is so close to Pigeon island and beach. Very convenient to go there in boats directly from hotel. Beach is few meters away. Hotel has only basic facilities but clean enough and has...

Right in front of the pigeons island, good service. Tasty food. The rooms are modern in the context and spacious. Good location if you plan to visit the island on a eve or morning. As usual the beach is crowded, but still recommended.

I am impressed on the quality of their food. Always the beach is nice and calm especially during the summer period. Good amenities too and the staffs are very helpful. All were up to my expectation ! However the air-conditioner of my room was not that good, but could manage !

The hotel is old fashioned but kept neat and clean. The Pool & buffet was good. Life guard was available so I did not have any fear of kids venturing into the water. Clean beach compared to down south. We also made a trip to Pigeon Island where we enjoyed the snorkelling.

Our check in was smooth. Rooms were ready for us and they were very well maintained and comfortable. Food was average at times and very good at times. Beach is beautiful and within easy access of the hotel. Some of the staff could be a little more courteous and obliging. Overall a very pleasant experience for us, parents & young...

Hotel is a bit tired. Lovely beachfront location including cows on the beach at sunset. Safe swimming. Easy access to Pigeon Island if you're in to diving and snorkelling. Spa treatment prices a lot more expensive than India,Vietnam,Myanmar,Cambodia. Don't walk too far north along the beach as there's a navy base with a fence and armed guards. Saw black-faced grey...
