Nice to have a small kitchen to make your own food, but the restaurant is wonderful as well. Staff is incredibly nice and friendly. Beach is just a short walk. Definitely a great place at an excellent... More

The food.... Excellent. The staff are very friendly and serve very professionally. I highly recommend these beautiful cottages for a wonderful vacation.

A very private and quiet place with great security arrangements. The cottages are clean and well maintained. The staff are very warm and friendly and Bianca the owner was just amazing. My babies quickly made friends with her and separate was somehow emotional. Breakfast was good and cottages well equipped for self catering
