We spent 10 days at Ti Kaye in March and were delighted with the hotel, room and staff but a couple of things prevented me from giving a score of 5.
We stayed in an ocean view room, which although semi detached, was very private. The balcony with double hammock, was a lovely addition and the view of the sea stunning. The room was comfortable with tea/coffee making facilities and a fridge to store drinks etc. The only improvement really was upgrading the shower to be more powerful.
The atmosphere of the hotel overall was friendly and very relaxing. Katie, the manager is passionate about the resort and works very hard to make everyone feel welcome. The staff too are friendly and you get the impression that they enjoy working at the resort.
The restaurant provided a different menu each night and the choice was good. The starters and main courses were very good, but the desserts really didn't seem to have been produced by the same chef, some were really poor. The wine list was excellent with a wide range of price and served with equal enthusiasm by the sommelier Cleus! Breakfast was varied with freshly cooked omelettes and waffles. Pastries were not very good.
The beach is very nice and much as we expected with silver sand. The loungers and umbrellas need renewing and I believe that was due to happen. It was quite windy when were there and umbrellas regularly flew across the beach so they could do with perhaps permanently fixing them. The local sellers were friendly and didn't hassle if you didn't want to buy. Sometimes the fires they lit at the back of the beach though caused smoke to drift across where we were sitting. The cruise ship catamarans visiting the beach were initially not a problem, in fact I quite enjoyed people watching. On a few days though, with 3 catamarans right at the hotel end of the beach with all the noise and people, it did spoil the peace. I realise that this is out of the hotel's control but if you are considering staying there it is better to know what to expect.
There is snorkelling at the far end of the beach but it isn't great unless you maybe haven't done any before.
In conclusion a lovely hotel with just a few issues.
