We stayed there seven nights and it wasn't long enough. This hotel is absolutely wonderful.
Everything was superb: the beach, the rooms, the restaurant, lobby and the staff. The food in the restaurant was excellent really high standards - best seafood ever!
Everything was pretty much said before so we’ll keep it short. We just wanted to mention that the brackish water in the showers is not a big issue and that the tide does go a long way but even if you’re a sea swimmer (like us) you can still do it when the tide is high – there’s plenty of time during the day…
Special thanks to Heidi for being a great help when booking and after we arrived.
As somebody said before "Can we go back now, please?"
