Good setting on the very safe Thesen Island. Room was comfortable and of a good size; a few rooms have views over the lagoon. A couple of points of which you should be aware: 1. internet access is not included (you have to pay for it at R35 per 100MB, only usable on 1 device at a time). 2. as stated on the website, there is no breakfast provided. Instead, a voucher is offered to make a contribution towards the cost of breakfast at a nearby establishment (the marvellous Isle de Pain is much recommended). We found that the voucher was of insufficient value to cover a glass of fruit juice, a coffee and one modest plate of food, so you will probably end up paying towards your breakfast. These two issues are pretty minor but were a shame given the prices charged, and the very pleasant nature of the guest house.
