Stayed there one night at the end of march. Yurt #15
The location is really good, quiet and with a wonderfull view of the ocean.
The yurt is quite big but simple, which is the purpose of the place. No bathroom in the yurt, you'll have to shower at the main building-could be cleaner. In the main building, you'll also have a delicious breakfast (where you can cook your waffle yourself!). The pool is next to it. Didn't try it as it was a bit chilly.
Even if the guy at the reception wasn't that nice, all the other staff members were really kind.
The only thing that I disliked was the heating system inside the yurt. At this time of the year, it was pretty cold at night and the heater has a 1 hour timer...then it turns off and you have to turn it on again. I don't like to waste energy but waking up in the morning with 5° out of the bed is not a nice way to start the day....Unless you want to wake up every hour during the night...
I guess it can be fun when the purpose is camping but when I pay U$230/night, I expect a bit more comfort.
