"low roomnr stay close to main area, so no long walkst. on the other hand you stay next to the "noisy" part..."
"the further away from the dining area, the quieter, but then you've got further to walk!"
"Room 1 is closest to restaurant and dive pier and go higher the farther away you go."
"There is only one villa that sleeps four (#16). It was lots of fun! the other cabins only sleep two."
"all of them are very good."
