We chose Shantara due to the proximity to the town centre, the fact that it was an 'adults only' and also the fact that it had a pool deck! On arriving we were shown to our apartment (with a pool deck and jacuzzi). It was beautiful and imaculately clean. The pool was lovely and being able to jump in from...

Can't fault the place. Great accommodation, great location and friendly, helpful staff. While there I spent some time at the spa, located in the lobby of the resort. This is a one person operation. I had a remedial massage and a facial. Jane has been in the business for 24 years and certainly knows what she is doing. I have...

My girlfriend and I stayed at Shantara for 5 nights in a studio pool deck room. The room was spotless and the front desk was friendly. There were no problems at all during the stay. The pool was clean and accessible from the room's balcony so we could jump right in when we felt like it! We wanted to take...

Where do I start?. This beautiful place is just what I was expecting and more. My first impression upon walking into the Jacuzzi 1 bedroom apartment was breathtaking. It was spacious and comfortable and clean. When you opened up the doors to the deck area, you could just take a few more steps and you are in the gorgeous pool....

The website a little deceiving. Our apartment??? was a studio clean and modern but no bigger than a motel room. Not suitable to spend any time in during the day. On our arrival unfortunately late after 10.30pm we were starving. Not even a complimentary biscuit in the room. Best western must be 6 star. Had a swim in the pool...

Dear Scorpion495 – Thank you for having stayed and for your comments. It is very disheartening to read your review and that you have actually been on the Shantara Web site and yet did not establish that Shantara is not a Hotel or Motel . The Shantara web site clearly states what the property has to offer ! the site...

Stayed here for a week with my partner and we enjoyed it's immensely. Pool suite and a good sized room, aircon and facilities. Loved walking straight out to the pool and made use if the bbq area. Really short walk to the shops and main touristy spots. Recommended. It's a safe, clean and good positioned spot. Do it! :-)

We stayed here for 7 nights was a great peaceful resort, with great facilities and nice modern rooms, very friendly and helpful staff. Walking distance to town and beach, would highly recommend to others and we would return here ourselves.

We spent 5 nights at Shantara resort for our honeymoon. We stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment with jacuzzi. Such a beautiful, clean modern apartment! A great spot if you want peace and time to unwind. We used the bbq area a few times which was great. Overall had a fantastic time and will visit again for sure.
