Ok stay

We enjoyed our stay,but were happy to only spend 1 night in the hotel and area. The hotel room was ok, it is quite basic and is not super fresh condition, the bed is comfy enough but there were lots of noises from some engine in the facility area and the ventilator made a lot of noise. Very convenient distance to the beach which is great. The restaurant food is good and portions are generous, though some of the waiters could be more attentive to the guests.

The location is excellent for having a beach holiday. The local area isn’t very interesting nor is it easy to walk around as roads are not made up and rains can lead to massive puddles - we ended up squelching through one in order to go out to dinner one night. But that is not the fault of the Lodge which has good food and wonderful helpful service.
