This was one of the better places that we have been to. Clean, tidy, excellent setting and a virtually private beach. Friendly staff & management. The food was very good. If you want peace & tranquility away from the trappings of daily routine, this is the place to go to.

Beautiful Location, tastefully renovated Basic Resort/Hotel that is still run very much like a B&B. Limited meals and NO entertainment or gaming facilities for kids, currently they don't have covered braai areas for rainy days.
