We found the Amara Ocean Resort to be the best ever Beach Hotel we had ever stayed at. It was certainly a Paradise, with our Beachfront Bungalow looking straight out onto the most perfect white sand beach. The sunset at night from our balcony was absolutely magical. The room was perfectly appointed with a wonderfully comfortable bed and an amazing shower. There was plenty of space and everything you could possibly need, from plugs a plenty, bathrobes and slippers and all the amenities you would expect at a top hotel. We walked along the beach every day and hardly saw a soul except some little children from a local village who delighted in collecting shells for us. The whole hotel has been thoughtfully designed to the highest standards and the staff have all been excellently trained. The chef produced wonderful food. We did not have one single course that we didn't enjoy and all was beautifully presented. I agree that the Breakfast is a little lacking in choice, but it is such a minor quibble that it is hardly worth mentioning. We loved the quiet serenity of the place and our 6 nights there did not seem enough, we did not want to leave. For people craving shops, bars, action and noise they should definitely not chose this hotel, but for people who want peace, relaxation, good food and a fabulous location it is perfect. I would certainly go back.
