No night shift staffs, No Receptionist, No House keeping. All only available come after 8 AM. Guest are left alone in the hotel at night, at the time when guests are in the hotel. So bad. Even 3 star hotel can do better. Not recommended to stay because it shows they don’t care. If they cannot afford it, they should not take any guest at all.

We stayed in the Junior Suite for 2 nights and ended staying for 3 nights cos we just love the room. The check in process was smooth, the reception even reminded us to use hand sanitizer cos we touched stuff around there. The room is very big, it has 2 bathroom, bed is nice and comfortable, aircon is very cold. Pool towels and bath towels are provided in the room but you have to request for bathroom amenities. The pool is not very big and the water is a bit salty but its quite nice. The beach is awesome and the water is very clear. You can just sit in the garden or chilling on the day bed watching the beach. You can also do watersports here. Breakfast was good, but the first 2 nights, the menu was totally the same. Would recommend to change the menu each day. Overall we had a very good experience here, the staffs are friendly, the hotel atmosphere is calming and the room is nice. Will be back next time.
