We stayed at their quiet time of year so it felt exclusive. The surrounds of the property was gorgeous with lots of palm trees, flowers, landscaped shrubs, artificial ponds and even some birds local to the area. The selfcatering bungalows were selfcontained with your own veranda and front door. We stayed in a deluxe double which had everything we could possibly need. However we did ask for a microwave, big mugs and a teapot which were provided to the room swiftly. The furniture/fittings were a bit dated but cleaned every day. Our autistic son absolutely worshipped the pool which he stayed in most days and the staff were very accomodating making you feel relaxed and at home. Cheryl, monica, jeffrey and shannon were true angels at the pool bar and Mary in particular at reception nursed my severely swollen/infected mosquito bites which i sustained within two days of the trip. The owner mr. Hopkins often walked the grounds daily and spoke with all the guests, very himble and hospitable.
Here for two weeks and really enjoying.
The hotel and grounds are lovely, everyone helpful and smiles all the way.
Rooms as mentioned are nice and clean, self catering with everything you need to get by. Pool and poolside drinks are great.
Early November and it’s hot, def need that pool. Beach is great and fairly empty this time of year we found.
Defiantly a hotel for couples and families we thinks. Plenty of chill out time.
