Very pleasant and professional staff everywhere. Great service. Specially Amali we met during our dinner in crab restaurant was always available, kind and very helpful. There was another guy met in our lunch time was treating us the same but didn’t remember his name... Room and bathroom were old but fine. Our room was big, clean and tidy. And it was sea view room. Nice pool area and the beach in front of the hotel is clean and you can see lot of big turtles 🐢.. not only we have seen a baby shark also. Our dinner buffet was at Crab restaurant since there was less occupancy and the day after breakfast and lunch normally in their normal restaurant. Food was fine. Not a big spread but fine. Only one negative thing is that hotel is full of crows. We didn’t mind as we are locals but little bit annoying to be honest... All in all it was a great stay.. Would recommend to all... Read less
