I stayed at the Charm Churee Villa on a group vacation/tour. I would first like to point out the pros, and there are many! The location is stunning. It's ocean front, on it's own beach with stunning view of the mountains and sea. They have their own dive school on site. The restaurants are delicious and the service is fantastic from the waiting staff, cleaning staff, and all others. The rooms are beautiful, very clean and spacious and we were in the bare minimum priced rooms.
The biggest con was the walking up and down hill to get to the beach/reception/restaurants. They weren't easy walks. You had a path but it was extremely steep. It deterred me several times from going out because I knew what I had to do to get there. You wont run back to your room if you forgot something, trust me. I think a well organized shuttle system would benefit this hotel immensely. There was also lack of wifi in the rooms, which didn't bother me, as they had it in the reception area and restaurants, but once again you had to hike there. If you are in good physical shape and don't mind walks in the heat then I absolutely recommend this place! We certainly earned our meals. But I wouldn't recommend it to anyone elderly or with small children. Or business people requiring service often. But I personally loved it!
