Great place to stay. Easy to find and near all the activities. A stroll to the dive shops, supermarket and shopping. Great treat being suspended above the sea. Magical! Very comfortable room. Great novelty tourist shops and lovely restaurants nearby.

Room adequate with the basic necessities - functioning aircond, slow water heater but there was a large pail to fill up, clean sheets albeit patched here and... More

I came to this resort not because of the stars visitors has rated it but was more due to the location it was situated. Judging from the map, I guess it will be sorrounded by clear water sea plenty of fish and corals. And mind you, I was right.

Very average value for money. rooms OK with big beds but the bathroom is not - you feel like having shower outside with all the possible bugs. Do not trust their Wi-fi promises the Internet was rubbish both times we stayed there. Aircon worked ok.
