Delicious food but a bit expensive, the rooms were perfect and beautiful in the middle of the nature. I would recommend to have more things available to offer anytime in the restautant like coffee, tea, water

Sorry to hear that you didnt receive the holidays you expected. Our cabins are basic, located directly at the beach so guests can enjoy the outside.
