    I went to the restaurant to get something to eat. On the property were 2 dogs and 1 cat that joined us. As we were paying, a staff member grabbed one of the dogs hard, pulled him into the back room and hit him with a stick. The other employees laughed at this. Worst experience! This kind of thing should not be supported!!! Would not recommend it to anyone.

    The most beautiful location on the coast. The vibe of the place is a reflection of the owner and the people working: chill, cool and mega friendly. The food and drinks are super good. Rooms are beautiful and spacious. Both the garden and the rooftop bar are great places to be.

    Really really loved this place. - the building itself is beautiful and is striking from the minute it hits the horizon - the lawn area and the view out to see is second to none and is filled with comfortable seating for you to take it all in - it's a great place to people watch 😅 We managed to get there on a night where there was a DJ playing great tracks, which brought in all the backpackers. The overall vibe was great and watching the sunset from the small portion of beach in front (they closed the roof for the event) was amazing. It's not the cheapest spot. Something to keep in mind. Would highly recommend.

    Been wanting to come here for a while so made a special effort today however we were left extremely disappointed! Ordered 2 smoothies from the downstairs bar and found a seat to watch the lovely view of the sea. Before we knew it we realised we had been waiting 25 minutes for our drinks! So we went up to the 4 staff members behind the bar, who were busy chatting and laughing and clearly forgetting our drinks as no drinks were being made. We asked where our drinks were? The reply was yes yes yes with an eye roll 🙄 NICE! A sorry of a delay would have been better! Waited another 5 minutes while we watched the staff blended our smoothies. When we eventually received the drinks which were tasteless. Just felt like they had added water and turmeric. Obviously they added ginger because I found a lump of that at the bottom of my glass. A long wait for a tasteless drink which was wasn’t worth the money and not the greatest customer service. Not for me thank you.

    We absolutely loved staying at the Lighthouse - what a unique place! The rooms are spacious and beautiful. It has a gorgeous garden to relax in right by the sea. The rooftop bar is great - amazing cocktails and sunset. The food is on another level - super delicious. Tarek and the rest of the staff were so friendly, attentive and caring. He helped us at giving recommendations for surf lessons and massage. Would 100% recommend it as a great place to stay!

    It is safe to say " I never want to leave this place " the minute you step foot at Lighthouse. The staff, Tarek & Solo were so welcoming and extremely generous and just beautiful. Suddenly it felt like home with family specially with sultan the cat. The whole experience has switched my perspective on traveling in the best way ! The rooftop and garden views are incredible not to mention the music and the food and drinks. absolutely wonderful journey ! recommended big time , can't wait to go back. also if you are going for 6 days or less it's not enough :)

    The best hotel in the area!! The rooms, the stuff, the location is the best Rooftop bar is a must for sunsets and dinner, the food is very good, try the hummus is the best around the area. I felt that the people who run the place do it with passion and lots of love 🙏🏼

    Never had the chance to stay here but been a frequent visitor to their rooftop bar. And really, nothing can beat that view! Amazing to sit and watch the sun go down while surfers are trying their best to catch the last wave before dusk. Cocktails and food is great and so is the music!! Great hosts and great staff!

    I stayed at the Lighthouse for two weeks and it was one of the most magical places I've ever been. Tarek and his team are very friendly and always there if you need advice of any kind, the food is delicious, the rooms are clean and well furnished, the views are magnificent, the location is superb with a very nice surf sport right in front of your door and the vibes overall are just some of the reasons I like this place so much.

    Went for sunset cocktails on the rooftop. What a view! Delish cocktails, lovely service, and amazing grilled shrimp. Expect to pay Western prices for it, but worth it.

    Really an incredible stay. The food is on point, view is beautiful and the host is very welcoming and kind.

    We ended our travels here in Lighthouse and it was the best decision. You can just enjoy the beautiful view from the Rooftop or chill in the garden at the sea and meet cool people. The staff is amazing and helpful and makes you feel like beeing at home. We also enjoyed the good vibes in the surrounding restaurants und bars, where locals, expats and travelers come together. We will be back!

    I can’t believe how good the isso burger is. Probably one of the best burgers I’ve ever had I am in awe of the flavour. My wife thinks the curry mayo and chippies were also elite

    A lovely place with spectacular views from roof the top bar especially at sunset. Staff are really friendly. Host is a great guy and care is taken with your cocktail drinks. Limited menu but great tasting food. It's more cocktails than beer at this location, great if your a couple or small group...!!!
