Not sure what people are expecting when they book the Cove, but they must be missing the point if they give it negative reviews. The location, treehouses, restaurant and of course the staff, are truly amazing. If you are the sort of person who loves simplicity, charm and VFM, in what must be one of the best little places/location on... More

Although we were not on honeymoon, we really liked this small boutique hotel. With only six tree houses, no music, no water sports, it really was very peaceful. We received a very warm welcome from Doris and during our short stay there, Charles and William were available to help us with everything and anything. The Head Chef was really helpful... More

We saw this place online and knew we had to add this to our honeymoon itinerary. We contacted them directly and the staff sorted out the rest of our itinerary for us as well, working to our budget. All of the staff were friendly and helpful. There are not many rooms so you have a feeling of privacy. The food... More

We finished our honeymoon at the Cove and it was a wonderful time where we could truely relax. The staff were lovely and nothing too much trouble although not the speediest of service. We were disappointed at a couple of factors. The rooms were lovely but lacked some of the facilities you would expect for a 4/5 star establishment. There... More

The Cove was our first glimpse of paradise and the attention to detail was what made the visit extra special. While I often feel uncomfortable if I feel people are running around after me, Rafael, Philip, Rosie, the Chef, and the guy filling our jacussi made me believe that it was ok for us to truly relax, and that we...
