Hotel was clean and satisfactory.
From extremely noisy construction activities above our room, stained towel to shaky toilet bowl. It was simply not worth the price we paid for. Did not expect the terrace room to be so accessible to anyone walking from outside. It was also noisy from the kids shouting from the pool nearby. Certainly not a peaceful trip that we expected. Checked out earlier than we planned because the shaky toilet bowl was not safe at all and the maintenance team said it can't be fixed in a day. Besides, there were huge rocks all along the beach and only a small area of seawater was able to be accessed from the land.
Best hotel for families with kids
Spacious and clean house. Nice view.
Great stayed experience for 1st time. My daughter very love this place for sure will come again.
the worst management service ..will not recommend to anybody to stay
1) Check in staff was good and tolerance. However, check out staff very rude and don't have a good personality. Is the villa is your property the way you handle us? FYI, we check in on 6 plus PM, 2) Not worth the money, beach no good, too much rock plus no beach guard, breakfast and dinner limited choice, breakfast also has limited time. 3) Discrimination? There is two types of room preparation we heard when we arrive at hotel lobby. One is room preparation for VIP and another one is for common people like us I guess. 4) There is an insect/fly at the room ceiling (2 single bed) and toilet room. I have a picture with me if the hotel want to see it. Must understand pay around 2k per villa it must be clean well and supposedly there is no differences between VIP or common people. If you want to treat them only then only open for them nor for another guest like us. Thank you very much.

Weve stayed for 2 nights. Upon arriving, the check in went smoothly. The room is spacious, we love the room. Large bathroom overlooking the forest. The mini bar is complimentaty. At night, we had our dinner at the kenyang restaurant. The menu is variety but the the food is, I would say, eatable. Since we came during monsoon season, so on our second day, it rains the entire day and night. We request for an umbrella thrice but no one sending it to our room. According to the hotel, theres umbrella in the cupboard, but we checked more than twice, they didn't include the umbrella in the room. Further, we have to request for housekeeping to clean our room, and it came quite late in the evening. The cleaning was not conducted properly, I even have to request the housekeeping to make our bed! Before we leave the hotel during check out, the housekeeping left the plates that theyve picked the other day at the side of the front yard. So far what we like about this place is the surroundings. We booked the beach villa overlooking the beach (though it was blocked by big rocks to avoid strong waves during monsoon season). The peace and tranquility is what we need. The kids can swim at our private pool and we don't have to go to the main pool. Those who are looking for a quiet peace of mind, you can stay here.
I had a pleasant stay at LaVilla. Booked the 2 bedroom villa room without breakfast. Room was spacious but layout was a bit weird as the second room is separated by a balcony and its own entrance and also had a separate lock. It's like the hotel can easily change this villa into two units of 1 bedroom villa. Bed was huge and comfortable. Washroom amenities are a bit old and the shower is in the bath tub. No shower handle if you prefer that. The private pool is a nice touch. My children enjoy both the hotel pool and private pool. As for the breakfast, we wanted to try the breakfast buffet so we had that for one day. We made the right decision to take the room without breakfast, as the spread is very disappointing. Not much variety and they don't replenish fast enough. It took so long that I ended up not getting what I wanted to. The next few days we had our breakfast outside of the hotel. A lot cheaper and nicer food. There are so many food stalls and restaurant in the vicinity. Overall, it was indeed a pleasant stay, except for the breakfast buffet.
