What I loved about the stay at Vista beach Retreat was the staff friendless, their willingness to help with visa extension or obtaining a covid test, the view of the beach, and proximity to small Male' shops/stores for shopping

4/10 Fair

The internet was very very slow. There was no room Service for the rooms to change the bedding or any daily cleaning. The commitments made from them was not done as promised. Overall I would never go to this hotel.

Why only photos of the good parts are shown? The least you could do is to show the chosen room before confirmation. I got a room with a balcony as stated, but in reality it was a pitiful space with a chair and small round table facing the opposing wall. It is a rip-off, to say the least!
