Excellent and responsive (but not intrusive) staff. This is good value mid-level accommodation. Small, but more than adequate, "kitchen". Walk to town in 15 minutes or take bus (v150 adult/v50 child). Restaurants close by. Cinema 5 minute walk for cruise ship days. High recommend.

Delightful stay in a well run, clean and smaller resort. It offered a pool, kayaking on an amazing bay and a beachside relaxing area. The smaller size generally meant you often felt you had the place to yourself. Bessie and the staff were always on hand to help make it a memorable experience.
