Don't remember the name of girl who escorted us to the room but she was very polite and given a brief of the hotel amenities, rules regulations etc. Property is...

We were booked into the Soma Palmshore by our tour agency, and, as was often the case, we got a superior room. The hotel is mostly a rather ordinary tourist hotel built on a steep slope down to a private beach. But we were given the cottage, which sits off by itself half way down the slope, far from everything....

Lovely hotel - comfortable clean and spacious room with good air con, excellent bathroom. Never used TV so can't comment. Lovely, private balcony overlooking the gardens/beach and sea.

Easy walk to the busy beach and cafes but a more beautiful location. Very helpful staff. Lovely open air restaurant overlooking the beach. Good buffet breakfast . Great swimming pool . Comfy bed and lovely room with sea view and terrace but the room could do with an overhaul.

I stayed with my family for one night. Room was neat and clean facing towards sea. TV is old type needs replacement. Food is costly and very less quantity according to price. Breakfast was very nice. Staff was courteous.
