My girlfriend and I arrived on a one night stop as part of east coast trip to this hidden hideaway.....
After parking, which was plenty available, we were welcomed by Dan and he explained where our bungalow/apartment would be, number 10.
It was situated literally right in the rainforest and it was excellent accommodation. We were slightly off season and the place appeared deserted , like we had the whole resort to ourselves. Dan gave the place a quick final check over , explained the pool, beach areas etc - a great welcome and very relaxed.
Everything you expected of the accommodation and great value. Clean, spacious, modern, light, tea/coffee, etc - great bed, bathroom (where the wall doesn't meet the ceiling - a conversation whilst in the tub to person in the apartment..).
The accommodation is right in the natural surroundings and you should be well covered in repellent , but that's true of pretty much all the east coast - and you once you make your way to the beach (walkway provided , 2 mins), it truly is a remarkable piece of coast line. We had the entire (kilometres of it!) beach to ourselves .....it was pretty epic to view.
The pool area was very cool, and I had the pool to myself - a great setting in amongst the trees and greenery.
A terrific overnight stay , had to drive to dinner though as the onsite restaurant was closed for our stay and without a car not sure how this would have been possible. Great little restaurants in a small main strip of town.
Would definitely stay again.
