Where to begin? As we stopped in front of the hotel we knew that this was going to be a great honeymoon.

Probably the best resort on the island. These guys run a tight ship. Cuisine is out of this world! Fresh fruits take some time to get used to. The pools and great view make up for the lack of beach. Staff are friendly and gives the whole experience that personal touch.

Excellent hotel to go to with your family. We were pleasantly met with refreshments in the lounge overlooking the beautiful ocean. What a way to start off your holiday. The management and staff really go the extra mile. The hotel is very well laid out. They have excellent facilities to enjoy for young and old. Riaan and the staff (too... More

From the champagne and fruit in the room, to the wonderfull buffet breakfast and dinners, the facilities (tennis, pool, kayaks, snorkel gear), and the pools at the hotel. Riaan, Adam, Zeena was so helpfull, and treated us like royalties. All the staff was always... More

We stayed here for 9 days on our honeymoon. The hotel is in an idillic location with 2 infinity pools and a jetty bar. Being located on the west coast means you get to see the sunset every day which is simply brilliant. The room was very high quality and housekeeping would come round at about 7pm every day to...
