This place is more of a small hotel than B&B given the level of (almost 24hr) service available by friendly & helpful staff.
We were in 1 of the new rooms, which was massive (a London studio could fit in the bathroom alone), very clean & comfortably equipped. (We had no probs with mossies, but kept our doors closed when lights were on.) The garden, setting & pool are great. You are 15 mins walk from a largely deserted area of beach.
Drivers for transfers were both excellent.
Given all that why on earth wold anyone stay at the lux resorts down the road for 4 times the price.
Yes there were a couple of small niggles, but they were generally beyond the control of the owners - & I have never stayed in a place that is perfect.
Worth noting for anyone who is a light sleeper the local stray dogs can have a barking frenzy at any point in the night - but the beds were big & comfy enough for me to just roll over & sleep through most of it.
