We arrived in the area and called in here for lunch. The food and service were excellent., Scoobys has lots of facilities and food/drink offers. What makes it special is it's friendly owner, staff and atmosphere. We asked if they knew how to locate our villa and after a couple of phone calls accompanied us to where we were staying.... More

Snoopy's pool bar was just amazing..Tara was our amazing rescuer ... She came and rescued my family with my 2 granddaughters from the most unbelievable downpour of rain ever. They serve superb breakfast and will do what ever their customers need. Well done and thank you.

Great bar with good home cooked food. Staff are very friendly and attentive. Owner will pick you up and take you home to your villa/hotel which was really useful as it was about a 20 minute walk from our villa. The food and drink were all reasonably priced and there was a happy hour for half priced beer, and cheap... More
