    4/5 Good

    The staff was very accommodating and friendly. The pool area, while small was well kept and nice. The free breakfast was delicious with fresh fruit and eggs made to order daily. The room was very clean and cleaned well daily. It’s not luxurious but well kept. Our room was missing an iron but not sure if that might have been just our room And the closet was just open shelves and hangers. The water pressure in the bathroom was low. Which meant showers took twice as long but the location was just minutes from the beach and with it walking distance to a lot in the area, so all in all I would definitely go back.

    Our stay at Vela Bar was wonderful. The location is perfect, 4 minute walk to both the entrance of the park and the beach with a free chair/umbrella service. The complimentary breakfast was delicious, I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

    The location of this property is amazing - 5 minutes walk to the National Park and 5 minutes walk to the beach, shops and restaurants. The hotel gardens, pool and room were all immaculate. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, provided us with advice and also booked a couple of trips for us. The hotel had a modern feel but was very peaceful with the sounds of the jungle. On the main beach you will pay $10 for two loungers and umbrella but the hotel will provide a voucher for free from one of the vendors. We really enjoyed our stay here.
