We booked one of the two room apartments which are self catering but breakfast can be purchased at the adjoining guesthouse for a very reasonable price. All guest house facilities can be accessed including sitting areas, games, very well stocked honesty bar, brai area, towels and beach towels.
The apartment was beautifully decorated and very well equipped. Complimentary tea and coffee was provided. It was extremely comfortable with fabulous views from the living room and balcony. There is a lot of sitting space just to chill. The bathroom was an excellent size with an over abundance of towels and nice toiletries.
Get up and watch the sunrise! See dolphins from the breakfast area.
Despite the fact we arrived much later than advertised check in through a series of delays we were very warmly welcomed. A restaurant was recommended, booking made and a taxi arranged. A late check out was also facilitated without fuss.
The location is right on the beach as the name suggest and this is not a misdescription. A lovely 20 minute stroll to the shops and main centre.
Only minor quibble for an apartment so well laid out - no plug for hair dryer by the mirror in main bedroom.
Would go again.
