Lovely place with a beautiful garden. We had room nr 1 with seaview and 2 large balconys, the huge one facing the ocean. Very comfortable beds and everything you really need is provided in the room. Unfortunately the nice canadian owner recently sold this property to a local guy. I really hope they'll keep this level of standard.... Some problems...

We stayed overnight at moonstone villas and was pleasantly surprised by how good this place was. Spacious clean rooms, comfortable beds. The outdoor seating area was a great addition too. The only area they can improve would be on the lunch/ dinner menu. The food was amazing but would be good to have a wider range.

Thank you Nilusha for your review - we are happy your enjoyed your time with us. You are correct that we have a menu limited to about 25 items. We feel it is better to provide 25 good quality and tasty items that we can prepare with constant good quality - than have many more. Maintaining a high standard of...

RaeleneShea, Public Relations Manager at Moonstone Villas, responded to this review

Dear Magnus, as you have already noted, I understand your frustration with the listing on Booking.com which has a policy of calling hotels in sight of the ocean - "beach front" and actually I believe that applies to most booking engines. As a hotelier - we do not control what the booking engines can put on their websites as general...

We were lucky enough to come across this hotel at short notice & spent an enjoyable three nights there. Near the Rock Temples & Silent Beach & opposite the Cactus Lounge & Turtle Landing restaurants with a pool & a helpful Canadian owner. The rooms are very clean & water pressure strong & hot!

Thank you Jean for your review and I will certainly discuss your comment about the staff looking grumpy - with them.
