Dear Anna, well, you're right. We are indeed a 3* resort. Maybe you came with different expectations, like 4 or 5 star resorts do. To be honest with you, we haven't ever received a comment on the ambiance in the evenings, but of course everyone...More

Reef and Beach is a nice small resort. Beautiful beach. Sea is not recommended to swim in. No plastic chairs, all made of wood. Every day various food is served, allthough not very hot, rather cold. Free taxi service to bring you to another beach.

Thank you for your review! Although I'm not sure you stayed in our resort.. We do not offer free taxi services to other beaches, I think you were supposed to write about Paradise Beach Resort. They offer a free taxi service to their second beach.
