This hotel was booked for us by a tour company and I must say we were very disappointed. The room was large and the bed comfortable but it was really worn and it smelled like mildew. The air cooler and ceiling fan both rattled. The swimming pool was very small and had only a

Rooms are basic and furniture is tired. Small pool surrounded by lush tropical plants and palm trees. Reception staff very friendly and helpful. Balinese restaurant is lovely, highly recommend a visit.

Had been originally booked for two nights but added 2 nights due to outings I arranged in the area. I loved this hotel and the staff were wonderful! Was advised of security precautions due to police reports of a spate of robberies in the general area (notice in hotel room too)

We were housed at the "retreat" and robbed of large sums of money, mobile phones etc...Management did not take responsibility for lack of security cameras and security of the rooms. Will definitely avoid in the future since security is a serious issue

Dear Jean-Luc, I understand that this incident was extremely distressful for your relatives and for the staff members that assisted them in every way possible. Unfortunately it was not the only one of its kind reported at that time. There were also similar incidents reported in other properties nearby. Through working closely with the police, we have now been informed that the offenders have been caught and we are hoping not to ever see this happening in our beautiful region again. We already have good security measures in place which is why each guest is always advised to lock their doors when leaving the room or retiring for the night, exactly as one would do in their own homes. Your relatives were definitely given this advice when they checked in. However, through this unfortunate incident additional security is now in place. I feel sorry this incident occurred and so sorry for everyone concerned, I do believe we did everything possible to assist.

Dear Silvana, unfortunately there is no shallow part for kids, but we are only a 5min walk away from Muddys Playground on the Esplanade, which is great fun for kids. Best regards Sonja
