"The Hotel is located at Marawila Beach away from hustles of City. Place is not for shoppers and Party animals, but its awesome for relaxation and romantic couples. Staff totally exceeded our expectations in every means. Rooms were clean, Pool was cleaned every day. Breakfast was average. Food in general is above average. My wife celebrated her B'Day here. We asked if a dinner could be arranged at Beach Side and the hotel staff happily arranged a nice candle light dinner at the beach. They even arranged a Cake for the celebration free of charge for us. The stay for 3 days was great. Pros:- Value for money, Friendly Staff, Awsome Location, Clean, Willingness to exceed your expectation Cons:- They do not give normal drinking water in room and charge money for Bottled water ( You can neglect this if you want to decide about the stay) Overall... Awesome"

"When we arrived the owner was surprised we had a booking, he look at his laptop .oh yes I've upgraded you to a better suite and charged us more than the price on Agoda, the property is either under renovation or is new but is unfinished , there was nothing but a bed in the room and a couple of plastic chairs, there was a door that led out onto a concrete floor with piers sticking up (for further constructionofother floors)with no lighting and no hand rails around the edge, other than that it had a great view of the ocean and a dirty beach and the staff where friendly "

"Pros: Mr. Solomon himself is very attentive and friendly to guest and mind you they don't even charge for bottomless coffee. It's a quiet family hotel with few rooms thus stay is really peaceful. Acceptable breakfast, a welcome drinks. Cons: There's drought, so shower is slightly salty and it's cold. Expected it as a beach house but it's not, needs to cross the street and few houses before you see one. Over-all: a good stay with friendly guest from Russia and Germany"

"We were a bit concerened on our short ride from the Marawila town due to the remote location of the hotel, there's hardly a surrounding restaurant - cetainly not any that I would have ventured out to try out at least. Our entrance to the lobby wasnt that spectacular either with the area being quite dull. I can distictly remember my wife saying that she didnt like the look of it as soon as we arrived. Anyway we got our keys and made our way to our room. It was a fair walk as we had been given what turned out to be one of the furthest rooms from the lobby. Once we made it to our room and entered - wow! It was lovely. A spacious AC room with a big bed and a nice clean bathroom. Although most (90%) of the rooms are on ground level the view into the lagoon was amazing. It felt like we were the only people around due to the quiet surroundings. They even have a modestly priced inroom service menu. We were keen on looking at that due to the lack of restaurants outside the hotel not to mention the distance we would have to go just to leave the hotel gates. We had an inroom service meal for dinner but looking back I would have paid for the well priced buffet 1500 per person. The food was great - good variety, and taste. The service was at times slow but nothing to complain about really. One of the best features is the pool. Its very large and theres room even for a casual swim. All in all a great place which I will certainly go back to if in the area. Highly recommended."
