Arrived late Friday night, but welcomed like we were the best thing that happened to this hotel. Interior of hotel totally immaculate, nothing out of place, free minibar, lovely coffee in-room. Ground level rooms walk virtually out on the beach, with kilometers of walking. Delicious and well presented breakfast, served by the most friendly staff around. Our suite was approximately...

My wife and I arrived early afternoon. The room was already setup, neat and tidy. Very spacious bathroom, massive bed with breathtaking views. Literally a stone throw away from longbeach...and was the "standard" room! The fridge was restocked frequently. There was a problem with our DVD player, but within 2minutes it was sorted out. The breakfast the next day was...

We stayed 1 night and we wished it was more!! Already planning our return trip to stay for 3 nights. Everything was wonderful - the room was large, clean and very well equipped, the view incredible, breakfast delicious and range of drinks included in the price extremely generous. We loved it - thank you.

Friendly and enthusiastic staff - nothing too much for them. Sublime view of the ocean, the distant mountains and surfbreak. Walk out right onto the beautiful beach. Clean feel throughout. Lovely breakfast. One of the best, if not the best, guest houses I have stayed in. Just one minor bit of feedback - please put a night light in the...

The perfect getaway. Room was comfortable and very spacious, the views sublime and service impeccable. The breakfast was very good with a wide variety to choose from. Hard to fault the establishment in any way. Thanx to the staff for making us feel at home.

Small, intimate "boutique" hotel which offers excellent service in a stunning property right on the beach. We stayed in one of the down-stairs rooms which has the benefit of walking out onto the garden (also nice view) and easy access to the pool. Upstairs rooms likely have better views (judging by "living room" area which would share this view). Lots...
