Could not fault anything during my 3 night stay here, great hospitality and friendliness. Food good and lounge is comfortable, large and full of interesting reading. The view from the rooms is lovely especially if you wildlife. If you stay here, a must is to drive to the beach and just walk, it's deserted and all sand !
