Stayed for one night as part of a month's touring holiday on the recommendation of my daughter who is not easily pleased !
Great location with lovely deserted beach walks - the rooms were of a high standard, but don't go expecting all the latest electronic gizmos - this is a total chill out destination.
The young Dutch chef and his girl friend waitress served up some stunning food - don' t know what happened re the earlier review of a poor NY buffet - I am used to eating in a very good standard of restaurant in Europe & SA .
I understand that they are leaving soon - I trust that the owner will find replacements as good.
It was very quiet when I was there, so can't really comment on standards when the pressure is on
