This is a great place to drop in for a meal or couple of drinks by the water. The food is really well prepared and it tastes just as good as it looks. The service is friendly and nothing is a trouble. The meals are well priced with a selection of local and western dishes. Will be dropping by more...

We (3 girlfriends) had the seaside cottages, with an excellent view over the ocean. We could order drinks that the staff brought us while sitting and watch te ocean. The rooms are fine. Staff is friendly. Wifi in the restaurant, good enough. There was nog fridge, but you can't expect that voor a budget price. It was lovely!!

Top location for budget prices. Friendly staff. Comfy bed. I couldn't rate this high enough. For less than $40 AU a night, I woke up to the sight of the beautiful ocean less than 20 meters away.

Hi Melanie. Thank you for your nice review and look forward to having you stay with us again.

Generally our guests inform us and then we reset it as the only...

Use the seaside bungalows! Great view over the sea directly from your terrace. All cottages are located sufficiently far away from the mainroad so that you are not disturbed by the noise of the scooters. Rooms are sufficiently big and always clean and tidy. Direct access to the sea - only have to go down some stairs. Unfortunately, the beach...
