Overall I thought Bliss was a lovely hotel. We stayed in the garden side, which didn't have a sea view but was still very nice. Great to hear fruit bats in the mango trees at night, and there were some pretty cats wanding through the lush garden. The rest of the hotel and the beach is just across the road. The beach is beautiful and I loved the natural rock pool, which is a great and relaxing place for snorkelling. The sunset view is incredible.
However when we first arrived, I was walking down some outside steps towards the beach when I slipped and hit my foot, because the second-to-last step was missing. It had been turned around and there were some nasty-looking rusty nails sticking out from the side, so I could have hurt myself much worse. As it is my foot was badly bruised and still hurts a week later. When I told the management they just said "Oh, we know, it just happened today, we'll fix it tomorrow", and to be fair it was fixed by the next day. But I think it was very irresponsible of them not to have any kind of warning sign saying that one of the steps was missing.
This lack of attention to detail seems to fit with some of the other comments from reviewers.
