Editorial review:

A lovely place to stay where you can be lulled to sleep by the surf is what Sebel Reef House And Spa offers. It also has a gorgeous beach and two pools to tempt guests. The location is ideal for day tours, and the staff will be extremely helpful to meet all of your needs. The rooms are decorated with a romantic feel, and there is even a 24-hour honor bar available for guests to use.

        • Single

          The location was very good & the pools & general facilities were very good

          The hotel had neither a name or number on to identify it, the breakfast prices were unreasonable

          • Average rating
        • Older travelers

          The dining facilitywas great

          The surcharge of 1.5 % was not mentioned till I was about to pay the account even though I booked via the net
