The only reason I hesitate in giving a great review is that I want to make sure Patara Viewpoint has availability for next year! Myself, wife, daughter 14 and son 13 spent 2 weeks as 'guests' at The Patara Viewpoint and it was one of the best holidays we have ever had. It's not 5 star and commercial, but it is personal, welcoming and we felt almost guilty in watching Musaffa, Ann-Louise and Ibrahim (Ibo) work so hard to make the holiday a very special memory for my family. Some reviews I notice mention Musaffa as rude or abrupt but if you take the time to get to know the man, learn from his local knowledge and genuine kindness then you will take something away from your holiday of great value. Maybe people feel he is abrupt because he has rules to make the hotel nice for every guest, but we were glad of this. Someone has to be in charge.
Anne Louise makes her job look very easy and is there for any assistance you may need during your stay. Nothing is too much effort for her guests and even did some shopping for us on one of the days because we could not find what we were looking for.
Ibo runs the bar and restaurant area like a dream and after a few days somehow knows when you want a beer, how icy you want your water and where you like to sit. If he did early morning spear fishing trips then he would be perfect! (hey pinocchio!).
And what can we say about Zilli? How many holidays can you have where you even get a dog for the day to make you feel at home!? (I will be sending you an invoice Ann-Louise for the drinks and food that we showered upon your pampered pooch!).
I would also like to say if you read a review that then recommends a competitor of the Viewpoint beware! Some underhand tactics by the so called competition. This review is on Patara Views own merits and there are too many to mention. Thank you Patara Viewpoint, see you next year!
