I am really torn about this place. The environment and landscape is lovely ( beautiful gardens and beach side location), the food is great, the staff helpful and we had 2 excellent massages. But for me it was a disappointment. We had a beach cottage, one of the four directly adjacent to the beach. I found the room very dark and damp. It was good to be able to sit outside and watch the sea, but the room itself was not a pleasant place to be. And you do need to like the roar of the sea because it was really loud. I would have preferred a cottage further from the beach - these cottages seemed to be more spacious and had a huge verandah with views of the beach through the landscaped gardens. At the time we were there ( October 2013) the sea was very rough and there was no way you could safely swim there, but it was good to walk along the beach and to watch the fishers, and watch the sunset.
We were also disappointed about the lack of internet and phone connection at the beachside part of the hotel ( we walked up the steep hill to reception for internet and phone reception), but I can understand that some guests would like the peace and quiet and the fact that there was no internet or phone reception at the beach campus.
