If you don't have kids and want peace and quiet, you might want to look elsewhere. The beaches are beautiful, food is good, staff is very friendly, bike rentals from Bula Bikes are great...

We stayed in a beach front bure, beautiful position, room was clean, very basic. I thought the kids club was quite ordinary, but that might...
