Well maintained family resort. Beautiful gardens and salt water pool. A good stock of magazines and fun activities for children. Very comfortable bed and fluffy towels. Friendly staff. Close to the ferry, bus stop, beach, supermarket and Mexican restaurant.

The rooms were beautiful with plenty of room and high ceilings. They contained everything you needed including stove top, big fridge and enough beds for 5. The bathroom was lovely and spacious too. You feel instantly relaxed in the environment. The staff were excellent and were really helpful with what was available around the island.

What a beautiful experience in an island paradise! Genuine cheerfulness and helpfulness began with the booking, continued through the check-in, relaxing, activities and tour advice and bookings to check-out (sadly) a week later. Nothing's complicated, but everything's available. The resort is sparklingly neat, trim and colourful! Peter and Eileen and staff are the source of this cheerfulness because they understand... More

Excellent place to unwind and enjoy the island experience. Very clean, well maintained and well organised. Eileen, Peter and Robin made us feel very welcome and couldn/t fault the service. Close to the beach, walking distance to a nearby bottleo and even have their own little shop in case you need anything. The kids had great fun playing in the... More

Easy, can't wait to head back to the resort! Eileen, Peter and all staff are just happy and easy to get on with!! The location is ideal only walking distance from the ferry service plus the bus service picks up just near the resort. There is a local supermarket only a couple of minutes walk away... Just easy!

Well this resort may be a little older and not as fancy as some but it was the best place to stay for our family. A great pool, very clean rooms and small enough to keep track of the kids. There is a great crafts room and games room and the bus stops right outside the door. With the various... More

Great hotel and good value. The pool was really nice: beautiful and well-kept, visually pleasing. Beach just across the street. Room was spacious with kitchen so easy to get stuff from the shop 'round the corner for meals. Staff was friendly and helpful. There are laundry facilities onsite which is handy if you've been traveling for awhile. Public buses on... More
