Looking forward to going back again in the near future, this Resort has clean... More

Equipped with double bed and a bunk bed, small table with seats, heater, small fridge. Toilets closest to the cabin were dated... More

This is a lovely clean very appealing camp. It must be beautiful in the summer. The set up for the kitches and ablutions is top rate. The price of $50 a night for 2 for a powered campervan site is on the higher end but really is a lovely spot. Showers were free for 7 minutes. Ask for a site... More

We had a very friendly welcome which was great. The location is also brilliant. We stayed in their best beachfront villa (called beachfront bliss I think). It was right on the beach and you could hear the waves at night which I love. The bathroom was lovely but the room itself, whilst spacious, was average AND smelt of something terrible.... More

We stayed 2 nights in a beachside family unit overlooking the beach. It was spacious and had everything needed for a comfortable stay including a well-equipped kitchen. The resort's location was perfect and within easy walking distance to the beach, shops, and cafes. The resort's grounds were well-maintained and would be a perfect place for families. Would definitely stay again... More
