After 11 years I've come back,with two children this time... no delusion for sure...this place is special, children are welcome and adults can relax in paradise. I had the deluxe bungalow but the standard ones are excellent as well. The usual problems with the low tide on the beach but...i would come here over and over again

This hotel is located on the beach. It has a nice beachy vibe to it, but it has some problems. The owner is not always in the best of moods. The bed is incredibly stiff. The rooms aren't the cleanest. And on one of the instances of dining at their restaurant, they tried to overcharge me. When I called them... More

The food was the best, great menu selection for all meals. Staff very friendly, and location was perfect. Overall, a charming... More
