We stayed last week of June. The accommodation is very nice, just like we expected. The location is excellent. Food is great and we recommend causeway restaurant the most. It is a busy place, but you can order it out, we took the food to the nearby park while our 4 year old son played. The whalewatching with 7seas is great, but I and my son had seasick (though I was told the sea was very calm that day). The staff were very nice about it. My son took a small nap 'till we get to the whales , and woke up to enjoy the rest of the trip.
