We initially booked the 2 bedroom bungalow but got upgraded to two of the new apartments that were finished in April 2012.
The apartments were very spacious, modern and well equipped. The furniture was very nice, very comfortable bed and great (also size wise!) bathroom. Air conditioning worked really well and was quiet, ceiling fans also. Kitchen had everything one needs (including a rice cooker) and all in all it was a really nice place to come home to in the evening - especially when coming past some of the dated guesthouses along the road. Everything was super clean and tidy and we got fresh towels every two days (which appears to be the standard), and flower decorations.
We were collected from the ferry and warmly welcomed by Lorna, who was always happy to help and very kind (as were all the staff, really). Nothing seemed too much for her, and we felt really well cared for.
Bicycles are for hire for around 7 Euros per day (make sure you somehow 'reserve' your bike though, as the really comfy ones are a bit rare - but Lorna was always happy to help and arrange a different bike); the pool area is pleasant, although not very huge.
The surroundings are really nice with a lovely garden and lots of flowers; we watched the fruit bats flying above us and even had paradise flycatchers in one of the trees. It was nice and quiet and a lovely place to be.
Supermarkets (Gregoire's or the one next to Chez Marston (but don't go to eat there!)) are good and just a few minutes by bicycle, as well as the very good Gregoire's Pizza (very friendly and welcoming staff and reasonable prices).
All in all we really enjoyed our stay.
