My friend and I planned a getaway after exams. To begin with when we arrived they put us in a cottage with one king sized bed although we requested two. They were in the middle of renovations I assumed since the place looked rather shabby. They also made it known that we had to decide if we wanted dinner since the chef/receptionist/bartender would be leaving by 6 so if we wanted dinner we'd have to say early- No thanks.
Breakfast was included but thats if you consider 3 slices of toast with bread or jam- breakfast. Breakfast is quite expensive at the restaurant but good none the less.
I recommend eating at the Mt. Plaisir estate which is not too far, the food is excellent there as well as the staff.
The cottage was a bit run down as well, with bulbs not working, holes in the mosquito net and giant bugs. Walk with lots of insect repellent. The porch with the hammock was definitely the highlight since in the night you can go out and look at the stars, what a view! I did have the best sleep I've had in a long time, the sunlight in the morning filters through the screens accompanied by the sound of crashing waves. That was good.
It's more of a romantic setting, not great for a girlfriends getaway, it was disappointing.
