The nature there is just awesome, very beautiful mountain and clear water, a very isolated place to relax. Snorkelling is very good, the waterfalls are close and very nice (eventhough might be tough for non sporty people) .
the hotel its self is not a resort, the room is good (just the view is blocked by electrical cables, whyyyy??)) , the bed is comfortable, cleaningness is ok.
the food is very good and since we are not too picky the set menu of the dinner didn't bother us that much.
For us the big problem of this hotel was the management and especially the boss:
It seemed that the welcome was kind of a military introduction and non personal ( very cold, I guess it's a chinese attitude)
Apart than this the atmosphere was a bit heavy since we felt watched and everything is made for us to consume more, the prices of the food for the lunch and the drinks are just ridiculous (like in Paris), the transport is another big problem since it costs 50 euros both ways so a 100 euros for a couple, also ridiculous.
The manager lied to us saying that there is only one boat to come back to Mersing and it's very early in the morning and we knew it's not true, this is a really bad behaviour, also he didn't want to offer a replacement for the breakfast that we've paid and that we will not get since we were kind of kicked out of the resort at 7 am in morning !!! just ridiculous.(anyway we got a discount for the lunch)
the manager is not an honnest person so be careful !!!
