A great project with very poor management where profit is put before customer service. If your holiday goes smooth you probably won’t find any issues. I guarantee you though you’ll have something going wrong and that’s when you’ll realise that the troubleshooting is very poor. From water drainage issues in the shower / bath / toilet (in two different rooms) to electricity going off every night of our stay. Generators weren’t working all the time and there’s no management in the evenings or weekends. There’s no privacy in the toilet or the bath in the regular rooms. Unless you go for a treehouse or above. The water in the bath doesn’t drain well. Picture attached was 10mins after a 5 mins shower where the bath was still blocked with water.

We had a private room right in front of the beach with our own little pool. It was absolutely breath taking. The architecture is beautiful. It’s all VERY outdoors. So there is a lot of sand, bugs, mosquitoes, there was a small crab in our bathroom where the plants were. So it’s not going to be the cleanest if that’s what you are looking for. Our pillows and bedding were a little stained but nothing major def a little sus tho. There was some minor privacy issues where some maintenance man I’m assuming it was kept walking past our bedroom window to a generator which was not cool because what if we were changing or something…there’s also construction next door to us I think so it was loud during the day. The staff was very friendly. There’s only one restaurant, but food and drinks we had were so good. Matcha mama is there which is also a must. If you walk down the beach there was another restaurant. The ruins are super close. Great location. Beautiful and very chill for relaxing.

The facilities are amazing. The location is great. A couple of areas to improve on: Train staff. Two (tall and slim) guys at the restaurant were constantly using their smart phone. It seemed we had to wait for them to finish their busy online activity rather than them being on top of serving clients. When we arrived at the property, one of the receptionists told us when we had made our reservation. We replied we had done it 3 to 4 hours before hand. She said, oh well! That is why I do not have your reservation. She said well, let me see if I have any room available. I understand staff is foreign and not qualified but it just made me feel so not welcome. We asked for an iron that never arrived. When leaving, my friend and I said to both girls in the front desk, thank you for everything have a good day. Only one of them replied. The place is amazing, I think staff can be invited to complement that same experience.

Sophia, one of the receptionist, was amazing and made our stay wonderful! The only downside is the hotel is pretty far away from everything and the restaurant is super over priced.

The room was beautiful. The view was amazing. Had my own private pool but my area was not very private. My neighbors constantly walked by my room and always had to take a peek. I either had to close my curtains for privacy and lose my view, or keep my curtains open and deal with the constant stares. The room was like glamping very outdoorsy. Even with all the doors closed you were still exposed to all the outdoor elements. The worst was the bugs. There were lots of bugs. They were even in my bed. If you're susceptible to mosquitos you won't like it here. And to top it off on my last day I found a water bug in my bathroom. Oh and the place is literally on the beach so sand is everywhere.

The way the villas are arranged at Ikal is just amazing. The outdoor garden space, showers, and bathrooms are so refreshing. It's like you're glamping but with all the necessary amenities. It is something I have never experienced before. The property also had scooters and bikes onsite for rent. The restaurant provided breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The staff was very helpful when it came to questions, recommendations, and help with anything in general. They were easy to contact by Whatsapp and by going to the front office. The staff did everything necessary to accommodate my needs and requests during my stay. Niki helped us with most of our requests and he was excellent! He was always patient with us and provided excellent customer service! I can't say thanks enough.
