Really impressed with this place. Wonderful hosts (great with the kids), cracking breakfast (scrambled eggs were amazing) and tot-proof rooms (and we had the best tester there is). Simple and comfy, giving maximum bang for your bucks. Really handy location, right by Coral Island, so everything easily accesible.
