So we were two women (early 30s) traveling alone and we rather enjoyed our stay here. Did a lot of hiking (10km round trip along the beach takes you to a very cool shipwreck and past some stunning vistas) and kayaking and we even took a tour to a nearby rock pool where you can jump off the cliff into the deep water.
Overall we had a great time and the food was lovely! We probably should have done our research a bit though and realised it's family place because there were a lot of kids (not our preference) but in the end it was fine. Mostly we were away from the common areas and the kids seemed to have lots to do so did not make much noise, etc.
One downside was the trip to the rock pool...the trip itself was lovely but they seemed to have waaaay overbooked and so we had to do a lot of waiting for boats and other people and it was a lot of wasted time in my opinion. I think they should structure those better - especially since they said we would be back by noon but we were not back till almost 3pm! And we had to leave that day to reach elsewhere by nightfall! Be sure to ask if you go on the guided trips how many people are coming with you.....
Otherwise a good value for money place and we enjoyed it!
