Rooms are well equiped and private although our TV had no channels and the outdoor spa bath had leaves in it. We stayed in a Garden Bungalow which was nice but bear in mind you... More

Our room #3 was quiet, clean, with an amazingly comfortable king sized bed. To wake up every morning with such a magnificent beach view was heaven. The snorkeling out front was outstanding!... More
