Smaller resort, less people. The staff is excellent: friendly, helpful beyond normal, and very upbeat. The rooms were well maintained and cleaned and the accommodations were timely and available at our convenience. My wife liked it so much, she bought a peak week.

My wife and I stayed here for a few days on our first trip to the island. It is definitely one of the better resorts. It is kept very clean and tidy. The private pools and beach helped make this special as you didn't have to deal with cruise ship tourists. Security was also very good. The views......WOW. The breakfasts...

This hotel was the perfect location for our group of four. We decided not to rent a car and had no problem visiting the fun locations within walking distance. Luckily this hotel has free shuttles to both the supermarket and downtown into Punda. Just be sure to sign up ahead of time at the front office to reserve your spot!...
