The villa is run down and needs a revamp. Rooms are old and we did not want to spend time in them. Also are rooms were not cleaned or made up during the stay. Wi-fi did not work in rooms and we had to sit outside to get a signal. No meals after breakfast. Sitting room is nice but upholstery... More

I was tired and I told them to help us bring our laggage together. but the manager and the staff just passed by on the other side and they didn't help us. (they just call tuktukㅡ it's only 50meters) this hotel is never worth 50$. room is not bed. but service is the worst

It is not our policy to bring guest luggage from another hotel to our hotel even if the distance is less than 50 meters. We are extremely sorry, but the only way we could have helped you was finding a tuktuk. I hope you will understand. More

It is also a short walk to the fort if you decide not the grab a tuk tuk. Cons: We originally booked another hotel for NYE and two weeks before our booking we were told they had over... More

This property has the potential to be called a Villa provided there is more attention spent on maintenance of facilities such as Air Conditioning and Plumbing. On the plus side, the Staff were extremely friendly and courteous. The Meals were great. As we occupied both rooms in the upper floor, there was privacy and the pleasure of using the top... More

I always find ages difficult to estimate particularly with orientals. There they were, all with identical latest model mobile phones, staring intently into them. They could have been in their 20's or 30's. They had ordered supper from the waiter. After 10 minutes or so they became restless and came to flop in the lounge area whilst their food was... More

This hotel is slightly out of town, with about a five minute walk down a hill to get to the shops. We were the only guests staying for most of the days we were staying, which gave quite a strange atmosphere with lots of staff hanging around, but they were always very helpful. The room was ok, fairly clean. Food... More

“If your requirement is for two rooms, the upper floor would be recommended as you then have the whole floor to yourself with access to a terrace with dining and bar facilities. In terms of a 'view' I am afraid that the location is about a Kilometer away from the Harbour and hence the view is obscured by a few (some unsightly) buildings.”
