After an unfortunate incident during my first stay, I decided to give this hotel another chance as it is the only real nice hotel in the area. The General Manager went out of his way to make sure my father and I had a nice stay, and I can say it was a much better experience the second (and third) time back. The service has been great, and I appreciate a hotel that actually takes customer feedback into consideration.
Rooms are very comfortable, all with a small outdoor patio / or balcony. The pool is great, and perfect for relaxing if you need a break from the beach. Although I would recommend getting out there early, as there is limited pool side seating. The location is a bit further than other places, but the beach is walk-able and the North Cliff is only a 3 min Tuk Tuk ride. Overall, I highly recommend!
