Close to beach and local amenities. Made to feel welcome by management and staff. Would recommend to old and young alike. Unable to comment on meals in the evenings as... More

Stayed here for a wedding that was being held on the island at a venue with only 12 rooms. As we weren't going to be around much we went for the cheaper end of the scale.

The shower.... haha what a laugh!! Took 25 mins to have a shower... More

The room was averagely decorated, a... More
