Responded 20 Aug 2018
Thank you for your review!! You booked through booking.com an accommodation at our ROCKSIDE CABANAS HOTEL. At this time there was mentioned all informations regarding the stay at our hotel and also the cancelation policy regarding your booking. You canceled your booking with full payment. How can you expect that booking.com or we have to refund you this money. We have reserved for you the room for a long period and you read and confirmed the cancelation policy with your booking. You can not blame booking.com or us regarding your cancelation because you did it. Thats all regarding this story!!!!

Hi! Is it possible to swim in the sea early August? Thanks, Thijs
There is a bath possible in front of our ROCKSIDE CABANAS HOTEL because this area is protected from a reef. At othe beaches can be dangerous because the sea can be rough.

"Cottage or sea-views room are amazing"
"Definitely go for one of their four cabanas - if possible one right on the sea front if you don't mind the constant sound of the ocean."
"Cabanas are amazing, but take ear plugs."
"There is train and streat on the backside, but most (or all?) rooms are directed to the beach. We never felt distured by any traffic noise."
"cabanas are independant suites, rooms are large and comfortable with colonial wooden furniture"
