We stayed for two nights to celebrate our anniversary in a 1 bedroom apartment last weekend after winning a lucky door prize. While it took a bit of adjusting to the new decor (think Gidget, 1950s) we soon warmed to the kitch and relaxed in the peaceful tropical surroundings. The spa jets in the lilly-filled stream outside our room were a nice touch and the curious resident peacock came to visit as we ate and drank on the verandah, adding to the atmosphere. The kitchen facilities in the room made it easy to take along and enjoy our own home-made tapas platter.The staff were very friendly and accommodating, the cocktails and woodfired pizzas at Estillo delicious and the breakfast at Bazaar also worth returning for. It's an easy walk to a more secluded section of Four Mile Beach and the resort's own pool, with its large day beds was an equally cool place to chill out. There's regular bus services into town and good gym/tennis facilities - but of course we couldn't help but do nothing. I was disappointed there was no bath but the hot and strong shower big enough for two definitely made up for it. We didn't want to go home and would definitely book in again.
