Hotel Vela Bar - Adults Only
Lovely modern small hotel close to National Park
Lovely good sized room with large terrace. Very clean and modern. Large comfortable bed with choice of duvet. Fridge and coffee pod machine provided. Large well-equipped bathroom with fabulous walk-in shower. Excellent breakfast served near pool; also afternoon cocktails/wine plus nibbles each day at 4:30pm. Beautiful gardens. Free parking on site and within short walking distance of National Park. Beach also close by with good selection of restaurants. Lighting on the terrace in the evening was rather bright and could not be turned off (was automatic).

Vela Hotel - loved it
Loved the Vela Hotel. Great location between the beach and the park entrance, and a gorgeous oasis away from the tourist bustle. Recently renovated with a real eye to design. Very highly recommended

Luxury jungle retreat
Stayed in one of the modern units, large room with spacious outside space overlooking gardens and some of the older units. Nice pool side breakfast, no restaurant on site but plenty within easy walking distance. Great location for visits to the National Park just down the road, although plenty of wildlife watching to be done simply from the balcony. Short walk to the beach so away from busy traffic, quiet and peaceful.
