stayed for a week, loved the place, the manager is great, her team are doing a nice job. Had an experienced chef, my kids spent most of their time at the nice, clean pool. Will be coming back soon. The fishermen would deliver yummy fresh fish every morning. The beach is white, sandy and only a few metres from this...
