Everything that everyone is saying about this place is 100% true! I wont say everything that's been said already but I can attest to everything being as wonderful as all the reviews claim. One thing I will mention however is the extremely comfortable beds! I think this wasthe best sleep I've ever gotten while on vacation!

That said as the holiday went on we became more impressed by the whole concept. As everyone has mentioned before Jacqui is key to this place....

Comfortable, clean apartments in beautiful tropical garden with a lovely pool.

My husband and I have just spent an idyllic week at Shades. I could not recommend it more highly. From the initial welcome to the moment of departure Shades gave us everything we could have wanted.

My husband and I were fortunate to find this lovely guesthouse. Jacqui, the manager, arranged for us to be picked up at the airport and she was there at "the shades" to greet us upon our arrival.
