We spent 3 nights over Easter in a 2-bed Villa. We booked the Villa thinking that we would have more space with 2 teenagers. The Villa looked nice in the photos and we were really hoping for a great weekend. Firstly take note - the Villas are about 2km from the hotel itself - so you have no choice but... More

We were there for 7 nights. It is in a beautiful setting of 6km long sand beach with 3 swimming pools.

Lots of activities were charged for nothing! Renting a... More

The hotel is quite old. The bathroom has stains around. I needed to take an hour to check in and settle in a room because (1) I booked a twin room in the internet but I was given a queen sized bed without explanation. (2) I requested to change another room with twin beds, but later discovered that the screws... More

I stayed at the Nexus in February on business. The first impression is very good – a well designed open building with a beautiful garden, pretty pool and above all a huge stretch of a white sandy beach and crystal clear water. All rooms are facing the sea, catching the sea breeze and providing great views. The room was a... More
