Superb Stay
I loved the modern decor of the suite. The suite was clean and neat, the bed was super comfortable. The main bathroom was specious. The view of the pool was rejuvenating. The staff was friendly and helpful. I will definitely call again.

Humble surprise for a vegan
As a vegan I normally bring my own food due to most BnB's not catering for vegans. To my surprise when I was asked what I was going to have, I told the friendly lady that I was ok because I was vegan, she quickly prepared a vegan meal for me!!! This place goes an extra mile for guests!!!

2nd great stay.
This was our second stay in a matter of weeks as we needed a low cost place to sleep in PZB. This time we were assigned the ‘Kingfisher’ room which is nice, but the ‘Sparrow’ was much nicer. The shower in Kingfisher was in need of renovation as the tiles were misaligned and the shower head was not the modern rain style which we experienced in Sparrow. During our stay unfortunately there was a major thunderstorm and all power in the area was out for 4 hours, but each room had a decent battery torch. The breakfast was lovely and we would always recommend this place as the pool is amazing.
