Beach Club vs Beach Resort - be aware...
Great locations although beware of that dodgy road on Scooters...
Having checked all reviews I was looking to stay at the beach resort NOT the club. My receipts and conformations stated beach resort and I was told on arrival I actually booked resort. Staff were most unsympathetic and I was offered a bottle of wine and a letter to sign to confirm that I would not complain on reviews...clearly I declined a crappy bottle of chardonnay as a 'compromise agreement' and instead wrote this. Please check you know what you're getting. The management blamed their agents but that is not the customers problem, they need to better manage through brand. Poor show. FYI, nothing wrong with beach club, it just wasn't what I thought I bought and had reviewed. If this happened in any other business you'd get a refund / transfer.
Excellent location - best beach on the island. The staff were very good and attentive. The In Sea restaurant had rather limited menu but food was consistent and decent. We had the Castaway rooms which were very comfortable and charming. The spa was very basic but Thai massages were excellent.
