Cape Sienna is nice enough but for some reason the place didn't really grab us. The couple we travelled with felt the same way. The rooms were nice. Great beach/water views from our 2nd floor rooms in building 5 - which I think is about as far away as you can get from the main area's of the complex eg pool, breakfast area etc. Having said that the place is pretty compact, being built on the side of a hill it doesn't spread out over a big area. It's landscaped and built on a tiered set up so you are constantly going up & down lots of 6 or so steps to get anywhere. This may be a problem for some people especially if your knees creak a bit. The only lift I came across was the one that took you from the road entrance up to the lobby. From there you walk up & down steps including upto all the rooms on the 2nd floors. The views from the lobby & pool area are breathtaking but on the downside - there is no beach access as there is only rocks below, not sand. The breakfast is nice enough. The meals area for breakfast buffet & casual type dining is set up next to & along the length of the pool. But if you're bit self concious in your bathers you might not like everyone sitting there eating their breakfast & watching you in the water. The pool is pretty small so nowhere to hide. The only meals we had this area were breakfast. We did visit Vanilla sky and have Tapas and drinks. Pretty expensive and not very nice. Very limited menu. We also had dinner at Plum Restaurant....beautiful place to look at but the food was horrible. It was a set menu with a choice of chicken or fish for the main. We can eat just about anything but this was really dreadful. It's worth a visit to the small pool at Sienna Rocks just for the view from the infinity pool. It's about a 10 min (down hill) walk to Kamala Beach and this is a really nice area. The streets close to the beach have an upmarket village feel to the shops and it seems that they can cater for everything from restaurants to tailors etc. The actual beach area is great with heaps of restaurants and massage stalls etc. Very easy to get tuk tuks or taxi's. Even if it's just to get back up the hill to the hotel (instead of walking). I would stay at Kamala Beach but not sure that I'd stay at Cape Sienna again although I wouldn't rule it out entirely.
