We had a wonderful time during our stay here. I loved hanging out in the hammocks and Kerri and Chelsea were such a great help. They always made time to answer any of our questions or help us out in any way. I definitely recommend staying here.

Generally clean facilities, helpful and friendly staff and a quiet location. Our double room only really had enough space for the bed, so with bags and luggage on the floor it fast became a sort of gymnasium. Free WiFi was fantastic!
