Reviewed 25 November 2013

First, the advertisement photo is misleading, it shows a picture of a beach but the hotel is a few minutes walk to the beach after crossing a road and a large parc. Second, it is not exactly tidy and clean! Hotel staff are not up to standard. There are much nicer hotels in the price range. Food is very ordinary. The evening buffet is really bad, the so called barbeque is appealing at fairs sight but the fish (which is a poor quality carp) is really bad. The small fishes are also dry and unedible. Even the simple barbecued shrimps are way overcooked and taste bad. Visited in November 2013.

Room Tip: please stay away

Actually it is Not Bad coz the price are low enough as a resort. Don't expect too much for the breakfast and the rooms are a little far from the beach. But wWe had a good time there although the private beach are closed at night we were there drinking and playing. it left us wonderful memories.

Sorry I cannot follow the bad descriptions. We had a good time at the hotel and
we didn't miss any night life. We have been there for relaxing and this hotel gives it all.
Beach, Pool and friendly service.
So we decided to come back.
