My partner and I stayed for three nights June 2013. We were recommended this lovely little lodge by the HIPZ charity, who stayed here during their fund raising charity bike ride.
We were absolutely blown away by the whole stay!
From our arrival the staff were fab, so friendly. Haji and Marina made us feel very welcome and at home.
We stayed in a very quaint stand alone cottage, it had a everything we needed, a fan, comfortable bed, good bathroom with shower and tasteful decor, also a little balcony area at the front. The resort was so safe and secure we didn't lock our room most days!
The food was impeccable. Fantastic fresh produce used from local farmers and fishermen on a daily basis, all cooked to perfection. .
We couldn't fault our stay at all. We would definitely recommend staying here, in a secluded bay, super relaxing, no hassle from beach boys trying to sell you things, the gardens are very well looked after and the people and locals are great to be around.
