The breakfast is very delicious, the rooms are clean and tidy, the hotel environment is good, suitable for vacation. So happy to stay at David Beckham’s honeymoon spot. It is far from the city. The sunset every night it’s so beautiful.

Recently stayed in this wonderful hotel for 2 weeks total relaxation. Not being the most modern hotel this hotel has wonderful warmth and charm which suits me compared to larger more contemporary establishments. From the wonderful pool villas with extremely comfortable beds/bed linen to the great restaurants and food. All staff, without exception were amazing and so friendly. Although didn’t use the Spa facilities did have a manicure & charming Manicurist Vira gave me the best manicure I’ve had. Nothing in this hotel is cheap but I was happy to accept this in view of the excellent quality of the food service etc. A big thanks to the staff and management! Once the Corona virus allows would love to return to this hotel. Read less

We have been on villa holidays before where you are allocated your own "butler" to take care of your individual requirements. That's always great. But here, Rizwan took the phrase "nothing is too much trouble" to a whole new level. We honestly felt like royalty, and can't thank him enough for how well he took care of us!
