We spent two nights three days in a double and triple room with five of us staying in mid-August.

This very new property is right on the beach, raked clean every day by the staff, and yet easily accessible to the local town and amenities. The staff at all levels are courteous, disarmingly friendly, helpful and genuinely engaging. They can't be faulted in any way. The rooms are capacious, clean, well air conditioned and lot with large windows. The... More
