We stayed here for a few nights and paid around $45 (AUD) per night. Our room was large and clean with a fan and ensuite bathroom. The setting was lovely, just on the lake with a great pool to relax by. The bakery, coffee and breakfast was delicious. The staff were nice. I would happily stay here again.
There is however some room for improvement. Our hot water broke every single day. And so we complained every single day (around 3 times). While it got fixed momentarily it was frustrating to go through it every day. I think for $45 at what is considered as one of the top accommodation on the island, I would expect better.
The restaurant food was average at best. We went to a cafe nearby for food after trying the food a few times at Tabo Cottages.
