Terrible experience. Had booked a 2 night stay ans changed it to 1 night because of how bad it was. First they got our booking wrong and then made us run around to sort it out, with not a single care in the world. Secondly, there was no power for over 12 hours! We were promised a refund and a discount for the first night- However we were charged the full initial amount, for an experience that wasn’t worth even half the price. Extremely disappointed.

The accommodation is excellent, if you want something cozy and private. The conditions were very good, if you take into account the location. There were some small flaws here and there, but they were all minor. The biggest downsite is the fact that it's not on the beach but 2 minutes away from one. For us this was more than acceptable

The property was beautiful, amenities were great, everyone was friendly and helpful. The only negative thing was the cost of meals and drinks being in USD and more expensive than other places in the area.

Overall the resort is lovely. All staff are just fabulous and the grounds are very well kept. The room was very spacious. The only reason for 4 stars was the power issue. I know it wasn’t the fault of the resort but we had no power at night not even to run the fan or any lights (better not have to use the toilet). In addition, the AC didn’t work so it was just 33 degree damp air with no movement. Still the staff were fabulous and if they can get the power sorted out it would be a full 5 stars!

Brilliant Little Paradise
Great independent hotel, it was a paradise. Rooms are large and clean. Food at breakfast, lunch and dinner were all of very good quality. The whole place is kept spotless, and the 2 pool areas are a bonus. We preferred the quieter pool at the back, definitely recommend.
