We had a fabulous, relaxing stay at Oceana with breathtaking views. It was awesome to wake up in the morning with a serene atmosphere. Friendly staff and excellent service from them. Even our 6yr old enjoyed herself and was not bored.

It is pricey for...

Oceana is unique offering with amazing sea views, a small reserve with lots of birds and some nice animals. The suites are well done and the staff are very helpful. Food is excellent. I really hope to return soon.
