On arrival we found the valet/concierge to be quite poor consequently we handled our own luggage. However, the check in was good, swift and friendly. The resort is very nice with a lovely pool and gardens and attentive staff. There is also a lovely beach with opportunities to do a few water sports. The beach itself is under used which...

Stayed here for 7 nights after a tour. Beautiful hotel, staff wonderful, spotlessly clean and well equiped. Did not eat there other than breakfast as there are many good options within walking distance or a £2-3 tuk tuk ride but the food looked reasonably priced for a 5* hotel. It is by the rail track but this does not detract...
