So I did like the hotel, but I don't think it's a good value for what you pay. I loved the view from the room and that it had a iron, but ironing desk was just next to the bed which was a bit weird. Room was clean, but i can't say that for the restaurant at the hotel. Also...

Had a great stay, the rooms overlooking the beach are excellent with a nice private balcony area for reading. Staff were incredibly helpful, especially Sham who went above and beyond to help me out with some documents I needed printing!

We were here at the end of the holiday season a few years ago. Our room was great - more like an apartment with a fine view over the pool and the beach beyond. It is a well known pilgrimage spot on the beach in front of the hotel. I believe people bring the ashes of their loved ones and...

This is a very old property. The place is not as it looks in the pictures. I must say they have been very smart at that. I had booked the place owing to the location - which is amazing & the place - which is a little below what you can see. First of all, the rooms that were provided...

View from window here was great. You can watch the devotees visiting the holy men and making their offerings at the water's edge. Our balcony, however, was visited by a pigeon who could not then get back out of the netting. So watch that. Room spacious. Rocking chair and table included plus window seat. Plenty of cafes and clothing stalls...

Quite impressive higher end place near the shacks on the beach overlooks the sea so views are quite impressive fussy staff are a bit over attentive food is no better than most around but more expensive it is worth a single visit to see the contrast with lower starred places
