Only grouse is, there was no float to borrow from resort. Furniture was a little old too, stayed on the penthouse but the sea view was in the veranda. The bed window view was terrible,... More

Lovely small boutique hotel. Staff are super friendly and helpful. Food is great. Very reasonable prices given the quality level. Room was pretty small but very clean and the sea view was lovely. Very safe (had a security guard at night). Highly recommend. Kevin B.
