How lovely to stay at a small resort where the owners respect and consideration for the local environment and his staff is as great as his consideration for his guests.
It's such a lovely vibe at Barrys place - very comfortable - clean and well kept, chilled out and comfortable whilst also totally non-fancy and without unnecessary frills.
Barrys support of his local community is legendary, and his stories of how the resort came about and his experiences in running it are heartwarming and show his passion for the place.
Mario his local "manager" is just fantastic - ever helpful and with a wise head for one so young.
Thanks Barry for giving us a great 3 day stay before we went back to the mainland for a motorcycle adventure of a lifetime with Timor Adventures.
The great day walk over to the fishing village of Adara with Nelson as our guide will stay with me for a long time.
Thanks so much and hope to visit you again some time.
Mark and Marie
