Buongiorno, la spiaggia è raggiungibile facilmente in condizione di bassa marea, dista meno di 100 metri dal Resort. In condizioni di alta marea è raggiungibile con 10 minuti di camminata. Rimango a disposizione per ogni altra informazione o necessità, Cordiali saluti, Stefano

"Email the resort to state the kind of holiday you on and maybe the view the room should have,we were on our honeymoon."
"Rooms with a sea view are the best"
"Tatu suite, much space and nice ocean view"
"Very clean swimming pool at the beach and rooms made of local culture"
"Even if you're told that the room is a sea-view, don't expect it, you can only see a portion of the ocean! They are nice though!"
$71 - $161 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
