Very helpful staff. Liked staying in the front part of the hotel complex. Breakfast staff were great. Ordering breakfast the day before makes things run very smoothly. Got good advice on where to have dinner, Fabio's was so good.

Michelle and her team run a fantastic establishment. We stayed in a pool side luxury suite for 4 nights. The room was absolutely beautiful. It was light, spacious, comfortable, quiet and magnificently decorated. The outdoor shower added a magic touch. The breakfasts were lovely and the service was perfect. The only area of improvement is the low internet signal in...

This guest house has a beautiful, airy entrance hall- which is where guests eat breakfast- walking down the stairway makes it feel like you are in a film! When we sat down, however, breakfast was not so good- hard sausages, overcooked eggs etc- a pity since the staff give you forms to order the night before- so it shouldn't be...
