no air con in the room made the stay extremely hot and uncomfortable. sleeping with the curtains and the sliding open will not give couples any privacy as anyone can walk past at any time. also TV remotes were not working so stuck on one channel. this should have been checked before I checked in.

This beautiful place is where any couple can relax and enjoy the seabreeze, the sound of the breaking waves and enjoy the hilltop view over the ocean. Receive excellent hospitality. Worth every cent spent.
