          This place is a good option in the west of the island. A bit pricey but remote so expected. Restaurant quite good, staff friendly and helpful. Restaurant has children's menu (not mentioned on website).

          Hi we are a family of 5 - 2 parents 3 children - I am wondering what room you stayed in with 6 people? I am mostly interested in staying here because I want to be able to photograph the rocks at sun up & sun down and as people recommend not driving at dawn/dusk am looking for somewhere to stay close by. There are very limited options. Thank you for your help.
