Great location near the beach and if the tide is out you can walk to town in 15 minutes. Beware of the tide as at one point the are some rocks and you can get cut off there.
The minibus times are advised, but are infrequent, depending on the driver depends on the helpfulness. The one German guy we had was helpful and friendly, the other guy wasn't and even though the bus was full he wouldn't go back for those who couldn't fit in. I think this is bad service.
The reception staff were generally extremely helpful and friendly but one girl was just rude and disinterested.
The place is very clean though and maintained to a high standard. It is also very peaceful, although rules on smoking and washing up should be enforced not just threatened.
It's good you can have beach towels for free, but the wifi at $1 for 15 minutes is a rip off! Especially when you can get it for free in town.
We booked a tour through reception, which was cancelled due to bad weather and they gave us a refund no problems.
Laundry facilities are very good and you can dry washing in a dryer or on a line.
We would stay here again.
