The big blue backyard is a fantastic place to be if you want to get away from it all (code for mobile reception can be patchy). We stayed in the bush hideaway, which was delightful. The food was amazing, huge portions for breakfast and dinner but it wasn't just about quantity - everything also tasted divine! The homemade cookies and complimentary soft drinks were nice. If I were being picky, I could add that at that room rate perhaps some body lotion could have been provided too, rather than having to purchase additional toiletries from the mini "spa bar".
Even though the other hideaways weren't that far away, they were well screened by the trees. Lisa was away while we were there, but Paul was very ably assisted by a couple of friendly ladies. I felt bad for them though, carrying those heavy trays laden with food to us!
bbb is very much a luxurious indulgence, but worth saving your pennies for! only problem is deciding whether to return to the bush hideaway or trying the beach hideaway instead...
