We stayed here for 4 nights in October 2014 and it was delightful. The room was lovely and overlooked the beautiful garden and main house. The bed was big and extremely comfortable, with very nice linen and covers. There were terrific wildlife photographs on the walls, which were all taken by the owners. The staff were very friendly and welcoming... More

We just drove up to the place and luckily they had a room available that was very nice. The place is beautiful and decorated in a modern / romantic style with a lot of privacy. Breakfast was great and the owner was more than willing to give us tips for the rest of our trip. Recommended!

I was surprised at how much I enjoyed the experience in Sandals. From the outside, I was not sure it was up to much, but this changed once we got inside. We were greeted with juice and cookies and given a lovely room overlooking the pool with a spacious balcony which I just loved. It was lovely and restful and... More

We only stayed one night but wished it had been longer. The owners were very welcoming and our room was fantastic with a balcony overlooking the garden. Lovely pool in a pretty garden and a delicious breakfast. A very lovely place.

The guest house is lovely and very comfortable, when we were checked in we were given our choice of rooms, which was really lovely. I had several issues with the man who managed the 'night shift'. It was cold and raining outside and we wanted to order in something to eat, he said we could not eat in our room... More

We had a wonderful stay in this lovely guesthouse. Rooms were comfortable, private and the setting beautiful and just a stone's throwaway from the beach! The breakfast was amazing and the facilities are first class. Our host and the staff were welcoming and professional. Will stay there again!

After 3 years I returned to Sandals Guest House for more of the warm hospitality that greets all guests. The staff is very friendly, helpful and very efficient. Rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated, especially impressive are the photographs taken by Tess and Rysiu - the owners- during their African travels. The garden and pool area are well maintained, yummy... More
