                1. as mentioned above a lot of ships were coming to the harbor in front of the hotel at 10 a.m. and till night. All the time there was a bunch of hippies at the beach. There was a situation that at night one huge ship stayed in the harbor and loud music was heard from it till 4 a.m., we could not fall asleep peacefully. 2. The Internet speed was terrible: 5kb/s. 3. Clean plates at breakfast stink ! They were probably washed by hand or their dishwasher came out of order. I understand the I was was on island, but for such money that the hotel charges for the stay everything could be done perfectly. 4. Housekeeping knocks on the door even if you use your plate "do not disturb".

                Everything at the Racha was 10/10 perfect. Would recommend it to anyone.

                Cost. However quality as good as the Racha costs

                7.8

                The beach and the island itself is gorgeous. The hotel is stunning.

                Very poor English from some of the staff. Hard to communicate at times . Service is not 5 star. We came from 4 seasons and it doesnt even come close to that level. Food could be better. There should be more variety.
