Negative Reviews

Problems with booking arrangements

Misunderstandings with bookings can put a damper on a holiday before it has even begun As was the case with Guests having booked months in advance just to be told a few days before arrival that the hotel was fully booked for a private party.

Fee issues

Taxes and services fees that are not included in the hotel fee, and that are stated in very fine print in the booking conditions, can come as a nasty surprise at checkout - adding quite a substantial amount to the total due.

Lacking privacy

The over-water villas lack privacy as they are so closely situated Guests can opt for the deluxe over-water or deluxe over-water pool bungalows for an elevated experience and more privacy.
