What a lovely evening spent at Shades in the company of friends. The food was delicious and the conversations were engaging. The ambience was relaxed and homely. The setting by the pool added to the beauty of the evening. Looking forward to the next event.

Very nice place to stay. Jacqui was helpful with anything we had questions about. We went snorkeling just minutes away from the apartment. Found a lovely guy named Spider on the beach who rented us a mask and snorkel. He pointed us to where some turtles were and a reef. We had snacks at Daphne's just up the beach. Very...
