8/10 Very good

nice spot for quiet holiday
The stay was amazing, great spot to chill out and really get a quiet holiday. The villas are so beautiful 😍 Couple of things that could have elevated the trip. The pool to be regularly cleaned would have been nice. Everyday it was full of bugs no matter what the time of day! Would also be great for there to be a better bar service from the sun loungers plus all day snack menu! Staff over all were absolutely excellent and super friendl.

At Tikitam, we felt at home from the very first minute. All members of staff as well as the manager were absolutely friendly and helpful at all times. Everyone was eager to make our stay as comfortable as can be. Besides, the food and drinks were remarkably delicious and prepared with passion. The room was decorated nicely according to its theme and the interior was well-chosen. Moreover, everything was perfectly clean. Tikitam is located within a wonderful piece of nature and for those who want to spent some relaxing days, it is the perfect place. We are absolutely happy to have spent one week here and would definitely recommend it!
