We stayed at Jetwing Beach for a long weekend in November 2013. Overall, we had a wonderful experience. A representative from the hotel greeted us at the airport and promptly led us to our pre-arranged airport transfer. After a 20 minute drive we breezed through a quick check-in. Our room had a spectacular view of the pool, palm trees, and the ocean and we were able to enjoy the view from our private patio. The furniture was a tad worn, but the size and layout of the room and the general vibe of the hotel more than made up for that fact.
There is ample seating on the beach and plenty of sun or shade--whatever your preference. A hint when it comes to choosing your outdoor seating: there are 5-10 regulars selling sarongs and other beach trinkets along Jetwing's beach--if you would like to minimize your contact with them (they're actually quite nice and not very pushy), choose a seat closer to the hotel building. The beach itself is clean and pleasant for a short stroll.
Both the breakfast and dinner buffets were excellent and the food service staff were quite friendly. We opted for the Bed & Breakfast package and had no regrets. There are many options for lunch or dinner outside the hotel and both Jetwing beachfront dining venues offer a nice variety of lighter meals and plenty of drinks.
If you enjoy shopping, there are many souvenir and gem stores along the street outside the hotel. Bargaining is welcome.
Thanks for a great weekend, Jetwing Beach. We hope to return some day!
