We booked through Agoda and when we arrived they said they don't deal with Agoda and don't know how we booked. So firstly do not book through Agoda even though it's a reparable sight. Therefore the problem of payment arose where Agoda usually charges the card automatically but they wanted payment. He was very rude and unhelpful and would not...

The Hotel Royl Beach is a family-run hotel beautiful located at the beach. The ocean is too rough to swim with small children but very nice to watch and good for surfers.The coral reef that some people write about, we found to be highly overraided since there is very bad visibility and the ocean is rough. We did see turtles...

If would like your breakfast on the beach and dinner with amazing sunsets, this is your hotel. The hotel was very easy to find and is offering a wide variety of rooms. Some are with sea view and a balcony, some are situated fifteen meters from the street and offer no quiet time throughout the day and night. Some are...

Rooms are really small, no place to put your clothes, few towels (no beach towels), no shampoo or shower gel. Breakfast was modest. But price is low and location is straight on the beach. A real budget place. Not worth the price.

Following our reservation through agoda.com we had email correspondence with the hotel confirming our room, airport transfers . Despite all of this, the hotel cancelled on us on...

This hotel was very nice - clean, had AIR CONDITIONING!!!, and the food was pretty good. I enjoyed my dinner here - I had the giant prawn. They did have a full bar, but the drinks were kind of pricey. This was the only hotel where they did not bring our bags up or down from the room at arrival...
