We enjoyed our stay at Arabian Sea Villas. The managers are friendly and helpful and the location on the beach is wonderful. We had a large family room and the breakfast was very good. Our word of warning comes in the booking procedure. We had great difficulty in contacting the guest house direct and their website seemed to have been slightly hijacked by a German tour company called Arabia Felix. We cautiously booked through them and then found to our horror upon arrival that of course we could have got a far, far better deal had we been able to book direct. To cut a long story short we had bad dealings with Arabia Felix and I would most certainly not recommend using them. We booked 6 nights at Arabian Sea Villas and basically Arabia Felix made a massive profit out of us for doing nothing but book the room for us. When we took issue with them upon our return they were not interested and came up with pathetic excuses as to why they charged us what they did. Basically we were ripped off and I would be very careful to make sure you contact Arabia Sea Villas direct and not use Arabia Felix. It has left a bad taste for us.
