We loved arriving to this clean, tranquil spot after spending more than 24 hours traveling. Staff is courteous and professional. Rooms are well appointed and the lobby area has a lovely area for tea or drinks. I would certainly stay here again. Our room had an impressive sea view. Breakfast was meh.
