Nice clean resort, with a great on site cafe/restaurant. Only a ten minute walk to centre of town. Rooms were spacious and well presented, only slight annoyance was the neighbor's rooster! Which had alarm clock issues and was crowing at all hours, however don't think that rooster will be around long, and definitely wouldn't let that put me off returning... More

Stayed here with my mum and sister for a week. The room was clean and spacious. The staff were friendly and hospitable. We walked to the main town which took approximately 15 minutes. Breakfast was simple yet perfect, we didn't require anything else - bread, fruit, tea/coffee and pastries. We ordered many things from the restaurant menu also and the... More
