The food was delicious, all day happy hour, the restaurant closes at 7, I would recommend the larger rooms as the basic king is not a lot of extra room in it

10/10 Exceptional

While on our trip to visit family & friends--Tito recommended staying here! I'm so happy he did. The services are great and it's very apparent they're seeking to cater to global travelers vs. ONLY local guests. I'm writing this on my laptop where my pictures haven't been loaded yet or I'd share them. Suffice it to say I'm picky--EXTREMELY picky. Hotel Dharma did NOT disappoint. My favorite parts: 1) Proximity to beach 2) Cleanliness 3) A/C--many places do not have it 4) Beautiful domes 5) Cafe/restaurant--bread is DIVINE 6) English speaking employee's 7) MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE IS RONNY--he is the pure example of joy & love. He is so sweet & accommodating. If I could pack him up and take him with me I would. Such a happy soul & it comes through in his actions. THANK YOU Ronny! Off for my next adventure. You can not go wrong with Dharma!! *my key card kept getting deactivated so I had to go to counter every night but they were all very accommodating and nice.
