We rented bikes for 1 day, it was a bit hot but great fun. Pays to go early in the morning. Food was... More

We booked 3 nights at the lodge. Great place to stay,clean, excellent food, friendly service. Road construction was a minor inconvenienience. 10 minute walk one way to the small cozy town with a beach, and 4 minutes the other way to the ocean and snorkelling. The meals were supreme with really wonderful presentation. We wanted to also stay and visit... More

Wooden House has great charm and is comfortable, neat and clean. It suffers only from the road construction going on at its doorstep. The location is good being close to the port and really,...
