This is one of those great little places that has something for everyone. Nestled on the shore it is perfect for swimming, snorkeling, diving and water skiing. For the less adventurous, it is the attention to detail and the personal touches that really set it apart. There are plenty of lounge chairs to relax in, magazines to read, all day tea and coffee, biscuits in the morning, cake in the afternoon and fantastic meals generally. This is a great place for kids. An in-ground trampoline and pool mean you can watch the kids without leaving your banana lounge - always a bonus. Staff are friendly, accommodating and happy to help out with babysitting when needed, sometimes with assistance from one of the other guests you will be sure to get to know over breakfast or cocktails - it is that kind of place. And whilst not to be encouraged, if you do happen to dislocate a shoulder for example, it is good to know that there is a great little clinic just up the road that will sort you out faster than your average ER.
