The huts are all stuck together and people walk right in front of your door and view, we did not get a genuine ocean view even though it was an Ocean View Heritage Cottage, the ocean was way on the side (so it was in our view if we turned left) and what we did have in front of us...

This was a perfect spot for my husband and my little retreat. It is located at the end of the north cliff so is quiet and beautiful with the ocean right there and a beach just a short walk away. The walk to my Ayurveda treatments and yoga classes was a kilometre along the cliff path which was good exercise...

We stayed here as two families with children. We had two cabins and a normal room. These are clean, air conditioned, free wifi and very close to the promenade, but very quiet in terms of noise. Can not fault the management or the rooms or location. Rooms cleaned everyday, accessible, great sound of crashing waves from the beach. Great place...

Cute little bungalow rooms at the north end of the strip, quiet and peaceful and overlooking the sea. Rooms were clean, fairly plain but had good AC and fan. Owner was really friendly and helped out with everything we asked. We only planned to stay for 3 nights but ended up staying for 5 nights. Only a 1minute walk from...

Great place to stay on the cliffs-but without lots of foot traffic. It's at the far north end of the restaurant and hotel row on the cliffs so it's the quietest place up there. Very nice cottages and rooms at a reasonable rate. Very clean and Manoj was a fantastic host. Thanks you!

Me and my partner stayed here for 5 nights at the beginning of October so it was very quiet as it was very early in the season. We stayed in the hut nearest the beach. It was basic but clean and there was plenty of hot water. The place was recommended to us and I went straight there to check...

The service we received from the staff at this hotel was absolutely flawless! From the moment we arrived, they were welcoming and friendly, tending to our every need. My boyfriend became ill on our second day and the manager drove us to hospital and stayed with us whilst there, comforting me and giving advice to us both. He felt like...
