We ended up here by a pleasant accident. Its a great place with only five cabinas. It includes a full kitchen which saved us paying for restaurants the whole time. The pool us great and there are two bbqs (didn't use them myself). The staff were great and we really enjoyed our stay.

We stayed here for 4 nights as we wanted to be close to the beach. Lovely quiet setting in a walled garden with a pleasant pool and sunbeds. We had booked the smaller bungalow as there are just two of us but were upgraded to a larger family unit with two separate bedrooms, fully fitted kitchen, lounge area and porch...

The solid wooden bungalows are big and clean, have A/C and a fully equipped kitchen and are free from insects - great. The pool area is awesome and beautifully designed. It's even got a very fun slide. From the water we were watching several green iguanas (as many as three at the same time) in the tree right next to...
