We were 3 couples staying in a self catering cottage. The accommodation was spacious and comfortable. The associated restaurant served excellent seafood and the staff were all very friendly and accommodating. Spotting whales playing from the balcony was an unexpected treat !

Great venue with houses with a small pool on the deck. Self catering but there's a wonderful restaurant on the premises. Incredibly friendly staff who just want you to have a good time. Food in the restaurant is excellent
