Visited this property in the month of July 2015. It's a beautiful place, well maintained, surrounded by lush greenery. The cottages are amidst complete green cover aptly justifying its name 'The Green Cove'. The accommodation is atop a hillock on one side of a tiny road and on the other side is their private waterfront/beach with immaculately pruned and maintained... More

Very courteous and helpful staff. Beautiful property and descent food(make sure to convey your choice clearly). This is my second stay here and I would definitely come back again. Make sure to have some time to stroll around the resort and their private beach.

I loved loved how green it was all around me. Great place and great service. Not exactly by the beach and the jacuzzi is not anything to write home about but I still found the place very charming. Recommended!

Our bags were waiting for us in our room and we were taken to our room my golf cart and shown around. The room was very nice, clean, good size. The bed was large and comfortable. Bathroom area was again spotless with a... More

Excellent atmosphere, almost a jungle lodge like experience. Lots of greenery & natural surroundings. Very warm & hospitable service. The breakfast table overlooking the pool & then the ocean - The two waters juxtaposed - amazing morning view.
