Pavilions and Pools Villa Hotel Review

Although the rates might lead you to believe you're buying resort ambience, the reality is that you get fairly basic accommodations here. Moreover, the units need a bit of refurbishment. But you also get a private swimming pool right outside your room. Perfect for couples craving privacy, the villas have full kitchens, lots of space, and sunken garden showers. The open-air dining area, built around a pond filled with tilapia, is a great place to congregate after breakfast or to chat with other guests at lunch. Cheers Mate is a small restaurant that serves basic pub fare. The hotel is not on the beach, but Sapphire Bay is less than a 10-minute walk away. Bugs can be a problem at night if you want to sit out by the pool; a can of aerosol spray is the cure.
