What a gem! Great hotel on an almost deserted beach, apart from the local fishermen who roped me and the wife into helping pull their nets in for them!! Hot work but lots of friendly faces. Great spacious rooms, that are clean and comfortable and have fantastic views of the sea. Excellent menu and choice of food and drinks. I highly recommend the lagoon prawns and lobster. The friendliest and most helpful staff of any hotel. The chef got up especially at 4am to make us a breakfast pack to take on a whale watching tour, and one of staff hand washed my shirts as we had missed the laundry. A really special place. Sad to leave after three amazing nights.
